xpTrail colorchange over age

Post by gezwineleB » Thu Feb 22, 2018 3:48 pm

Hi there!!
Hope you are all fine!

I have a shot-ermitter and I don't get the thing with the color-change by age (gradient) along the Trail - the color changes only over the full length of the trail! How can I match this?
I already watched the video-manual about Trails inside Cycles 4D, but sadly it doesn't work like in the video! :?


Thank you so much for your support!!

That is related to the lifespan of a particle.
The trail is a trail of a particle and if you set gradient by age for the particle, particle changes color over time so does its trail.

Thx,

this makes sense but is there any solution how I can fix it?
actually in the old version there was a way to do so - but doesn't
work in the update anymore. I'll just keep on going...
