Particle Groups For Particle Systems

by Inlet in Addons



Say you’ve got a fire, made of three particles. Smoke, flame and embers. Want to change when the fire starts and ends? That’s 6 values you have to individually alter. Want a second fire somewhere else?  Now you have to make a duplicate and set another six values for each Particle System.

With Particle Groups you can group all of these particle systems into 1 which can be modified and made copies of. You can change when certain particles will start at, the total length of the Particle Groups, as well as creating a loop. Now it's easier than ever to create epic visual effects, super special effects!

You don’t have particle systems to utilize with Particle Groups? Time to check the Impact Particles plugin - https://blendermarket.com/products/weapon-impact-particles



In order to modify a specific particle system, you’d just want to modify the original which you used to combine into a Particle Group. This translates into endless variations and total control over your results.

When you create a group and copy it into new groups, all those groups will inherit the same values as the original. Changing any of the values of the copies and original will change all groups together. You can easily ungroup a selected group and have it as its own new group that follows its own new values.
