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"

Niagara - particle death (kill/removal) how to?

Greetings. I have a question related to Niagara.

I'm aware it's not ready for public, but this post is not about bugs but about the basic usage. Niagara is amazing tool. I've played with it some time and (despite some crashes) managed to set the particle system and add it to the world.

But I have no clue how to kill particles? Is it even possible?
