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"

scaling particles YZ

So I've made a simple material with radialGradiantExponetial node and particle color, nothing fancy.

However when I go to the particle system and want to stretch the particle with initial size things doesn't work as I expected.

When I increase the scale for X it scales the particle uniformly, and when I increase the scale for Z or Y nothing happens. This goes for size based on speed as well. I've followed tutorials that supposedly stretches the particles, however mine still scales uniformly even when I follow them step by step. shader material

Required > Screen Alignment also affects scaling of particles. Try PSA Velocity and see how it looks.
