Can't tell from the screengrab, but that appears to be the position graph, and since you (or I) used "record position" there are keys at every frame. When you say you want to change the "start time of
Particle Illusions 3.09 and Windows 8.

Hi. Is anyone else having issues with Particle Illusions on Windows 8 I find if you change the dimensions of the interface area that the screen is not redrawn correctly and you have to minimize and ma

Open the emitter properties dialog for the stage emitter. Select the "Crystals" particle type in the hierarchy at the left In the middle pane set the "random range" value to 0 (it's at 60 right now) T

Tony -- sorry I didn't see this earlier! You've never been able to make the particles bigger by using any on-screen controls, but maybe you mean an ellipse or area emitter You can still change the rad

I'm trying to save out the positional data for an item out of Lightwave for use in PI3. My LW camera is a perspective camera at 1920 x 1080 resolution, Aspect = 1 and Frame = 0.5906", Multiplier = 100

by Alan Lorence 2 months ago
Hi Kevin! Complete guess, but what if you try 1920 x 1920 -- does that work That LW script is probably so out of date, there may be something simple that needs to be modified. Alan. ..................

1920x1080 BMPs rendering with non-square pixel aspect ratio - how to reset to 1:1?
by Richard Lyall 4 months ago
I'm rendering out 1920x1080 BMPs, but they are showing up with non-square pixel aspect ratios. I don't know how to reset this to 1:1. How can I do this Cheers Richard =================================
Re: 1920x1080 BMPs rendering with non-square pixel aspect ratio - how to reset to 1:1?
