TC Particular is applied to a solid in my SEQ. I built the solid 1st and then moved it to 14s.
In most cases people want to cut of the begining of the particle due to how long it takes to fill the screen.
In my case i am trying to get it so that the beginning is seen.
Is there a way to do this without a separate comp or precomp?
Look for Pre-Run under Emitter > Emission Extras. Just click and drag to set the position of the particles at the first frame.
Just keyframe the value of the number of particles.
I ended up using a comp.
