Heya Dawonn,

I’ve done this before, and it took me a sec to re-figure out what it was that i did. Try this:

Have your partical emmiter going in the normal -Z to get your downward flow, now set the Norm button (just above your forces) to a lesser value. Say if you have your -Z force to 100, try 120 on the Norm button. Use the Norm depending on where you want the fallback to occur. A greater value will make them go up quite high before it comes back down, a lesser value will make it come down quite soon.

Anywayz, hopefully that helped, if not let me know and i will try to explain it better for you. :wink:

Matt,

Blend on, and blend well!!!
