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"

Per-particle animation offset in material?

Is there a way to offset or randomize an animation per-particle? I followed this tutorial and now I'm putting the material on a mesh emitter. The big problem is that all of the particles run the same animation at the same time. I've tried to randomize it by using particle size and radius, to alter the panner's time and speed, but nothing seems to work.

Here is the problem in action:alt text

You could offset panner time and speed with a "particle random" node, but also look into the "Dynamic Parameter" node in the material editor as both will give you some features that work with cascade.

The particle random only works with gpu if im correct, but I am still not sure about that. The Dynamic Parameter node on other hand comes with a "Dynamic > parameter" module in which you can set values to change on spawn within a certain range.

I suggest to play with those :)
