particlePosition = [sin(Time*360)*radius, cos(Time*360)*radius, particleAge ] would give you spirals going upwards spinning 360° every second...

Hehe, nice one, Captain! Another way is to use the speed by icon operator - you can pass particles to it at different points, and if it's path constrained to a spiral, the particles will perform the move too.

remember this scene in first MUMMY film (1999) ???

while "the mummy" open his mouth blows particles and throw a "parasite insects" effect.....

Haven't seen the movie, regretably. But I hope you're on your way to achieving the effect - post again if you have a more concrete question.

resume:
animate particles outside mouth while character blow.
particles have to travel in 8 spiral forms

how to put it inside the SCRIPT operator ?


EDIT:
let say i have 1 cylinder that have a face extruded along a spline.....
is it possible to make particles passing and traveling inside it, respecting the volume of gemoetry ?

like an air passing inside a pipe ???

Split your flow into 8 events (with split amount operators) and create the 8 different spirals, with 8 speed-by-icons.

Just use a spline to drive them, again with speed by icon, using the 'steer towards trajectory' option.
