Emit objects that are emitters too

Hello Guys,

actually i try to emit a objects that shall also emit other particles. I have an object that emits particles with the result, that it look like a nice light streak. You can see the tutorial here:

http://blenderdiplom.com/index.php?option=com_k2&view=item&id=29:tutorial-light-streaks-in-blender&Itemid=106&lang=de

But if i try to emit a huge amount of these (light streak) objects, they dont emit particles, with the result that there is no light streak. Only the Object is emitted. :confused:

Is it a mistake of mine or is it a limitation of Blender? I use 2.57.
I’ve uploaded the blend, for anyone.

Hope you guys can help me.

Thanks in evidence! :slight_smile:

Hello Legenbear! What you want to do is not working yet, but should work in future releases of Blender…

Damn! Is there any kind of work around?

None that I know of :frowning:
