partical fade?

just wondering for particals can i fade in/fade out the colors of the particals? if not i think blender would beable to do that if so please tell me how. Thanks and good blending

for the particles you can set a material index
for a material you can set an IPO with the alpha value going from 1 to 0
so I suppose that yes, you can fade out particles the very same way you do for any object/material
hopes this is an acceptable solution for you; apart of this, AFAIK, particles are fully rendered until their lifespawn limit is reached, making them disappear. So no fading this way.

so your saying i can make the particals fade out and disappear? but thanks thats what i wanted
