I’ve been trying to figure out the cause of a problem I’ve been having with the particle system. I’ve searched as well as I could for solutions, but my searches have been unsuccessful since I’m not even sure what to call it.
First, I should mention that I’m trying to emulate a tutorial by Colin over at PeerlessProductions.com when this problem cropped up. Even when I follow his steps exactly, I come up with a ‘grouping’ of particles. His particle streams seem smooth with no indication of this effect I’m getting (this is mid-rotation):
I’ve tried changing every setting I can think of to affect it but the only thing I can really affect is the length of this grouping. Is this a bug? Or am I just missing something? The only difference I know of is that he was running 2.41 in the tutorial whereas I am running 2.43 (on Windows and Mac with the same results).
Any advice? This is most annoying.
My blend file is here if you want to see what settings I’m using.
