Particle System - Nice looking sparks
« on: Jan 16, 14, 08:22:49 PM »

Anyone got some settings for the particle system to get some nice looking sparks that either intermittently drop down from a broken machine or perhaps a flood of sparks that come out of a ceiling panel for example.

In particular something that maybe looks like this - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ui3lFVh8WDQ

This effect kind of like the fire explosion tutorial but with a much finer range.

So have the particles come out from the source fall, and have them with bounce on collide setup. To give it a bit of random effect use one of the curve types, might have to play around with them to get the feel you want. In regards to the duration they fall, and how frequently the particle fires.

Should be able to slightly change the color over time to give it a burning out appearance as well.

Sorry it's not more finite in actual settings I've just been really tied up and haven't had to play around with testing.
