so im doing a motion path with particles to spell out some words, but i cant figure out how to make the first one start on frame 1, and the second word to start on frame 100? any ideas ?
If you really only have a 2 particle animation. Try setting your starting frame to 1 and your end frame to 200. With life set long, like the length of your animation. Then set your count to 2.
This should cause the particle system to generate 2 particles, one on frame #1 and one on frame #100.
Put your words in a group and use group display for the the particle system. Add the words to the group in the order you want them to appear and do not click the PICK RANDOM button for the group. Because you are not picking random from the group, the default action is to pick sequentially from the group.
