fumefx particle source per particle params

hi guys is there any way to get the fumefx particle source helper to apply it's paramaters on a per particle basis. ie scale the radius in the source from 0 to 1 over a particles life, or animate the temperature per particle in a similar way.

I worked out a workaround by meshing the particles and then using this mesher object as a fume object source which works well but seems to take up more ram and i'm damn stuck in 32bit so need to be efiicient.

cheers

ok now i'm back to square one! i need my fume particle source particles to be a bunch of geom instanced particles as described above i am using the mesher for this which all of a sudden is causing problems for fume. It just randomly connects one particle with another as a single source even though they a fair distance away from each other so you get all these fume criss crosses and they are sporadic over time. Is there a better way to deal with creating many geom based fume sources?

cheers
