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"

Cylinder shaped particle?

Hi. Im trying to make a different looking thruster particle animation like they used to do in some older games. It would be 1 wide but short cylinder with flame texture on it and after time it would transform into a thinner and longer cylinder like in this picture http://i.imgur.com/X5ugzlM.png

I think it looks pretty cool but I dont know how to do this in cascade or is it even possible. How should I progress in order to get this done? Any help appreciated.

Yea, you would make a mesh in max/maya/blender etc and then use that mesh inside of your particle system by way of mesh emitter. Then, you can adjust the mesh size scale etc within cascade. Google will be your friend :)
