Particle scripting

I’ve searched all over and can’t find an answer. I would like to script the particle settings either through IPO curves, or Python scripts (which I can tie to another object and redirect to the settings for particles if I could find out how to control the particle settings.) In particular (no pun intended) I would like to affect normals, acceleration, Brownian motion and whatever else to show things such as hair growing over time and getting more disheveled and so have particle generators start out putting out slow particles and flickering faster on IPO curves I set.

Is there any way to get access to these settings through Python or otherwise?

Maybe try to post in the scripting python section to get more info?

I didn’t know what method could be used to animate particle parameters, but I’ll ask over there as well. (I’m new here.)

Welcome to the forums! I haven’t done any python scripting with particles yet, but here’s the link to the latest blender api:

There’s a “Particle” module that should contain all you need. Good luck
