Been using blender for a while; have decided to rejoin the community.
Here’s some fun w/ the new particle features…I sort of liked it. I find that in later frames, particle animations with attractors get very cluttered if the particles have long lives…a way to get the feel of how they’re moving without cluttering up the screen with old particles is to animate the Halosize, which can give some pretty interesting results.
EDIT: someone said they can’t see it, here’s the link
EDIT 2: The vector button is in the animation menue, under particles, next to BSPline and Face.
