I am working with a 10 second composition. What I am having trouble with is the emit speed within trapcode particular. Throughout my 10 second composition, I do not want any more particles showing up. Particles keep popping up rapidly. I just want a set number of particles throughout my 10 second composition. I tried messing with a bunch of settings but I cant peg it. Any input? Thanks.
ANd what exactly? It's still not clear what you are trying to achieve and your post is confusing and even contradictory... You need to explain better and provider proper info about your settings etc..
Set an emitter key frame for a certain number of particles at 0:00:00 and make it a HOLD KEY FRAME. At frame 1, set another keyframe with a value of zero. That way no further particles will be emitted.
If you need them to all just say in place, you can ramp the effect time down from 1 - zero over a frame or two. That will hold the particles in place.
Thanks a lot Trent! That did the trick. Much appreciated!
