Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

can i parent particles to another object?

I've been trying to use particle systems for a number of effects on a character - but i have run into problems as the character moves around alot which tends to cause particles to scatter all over the place and ruin the effect.

Anyway, my initial thought to solve this would be to force the particles to inherit the parent object's velocity over their lifetime. While i see that this can be done on particle spawn (inherit parent velocity) , I don't see a way that i can do that over the particle's lifetime. Is that possible?

Failing that, are there common practices to making a particle system more predictable when attached to a dynamic object?

thank you!

I do not know if it helps, but have you tried to use the "Use Local Space" option in the Required-Module of your particles?
