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't adjust ribbon emitter origin?

I've got a particle system that I'm using for the exhaust/contrails of a spaceship. I want to have multiple ribbon emitters offset at different positions to create multiple trails, but no matter what I do, I can't seem to actually move the emitter origin.

Am I missing something?alt text

Hi fleamo -

Instead of adjusting your Emitter Origin, add an Initial Location Module and add the offset you are looking to get with the origin movement.

Thank You -
