Are you sure that the Alpha, Fade In, and Fade Out attributes are working?
Can you upload an example showing how it works?
With your first Particle System, I can clearly see results when using the Alpha attribute instantly.
With your new version, I am not seeing any results at all.
Try the snow scene. The snow flakes fade in.
I don't know what you mean by "your first Particle System" or "new version".
Thanks, I see the Alpha attributes working with the Snow scene.
I was referring to your first version being your Experimental Particle System::
and your "new version" being in this thread.
I see now that in order to use your Alpha, Fade In, and Fade Out attributes you have made a modified AlphaTexture.
Seems to me that the default material for the Dot
object should include this modified AlphaTexture so that the Alpha, Fade In, and Fade Out attributes works. Presently they do not work.
That said, I am not sure about the pros or cons.
I have been experimenting with your modified AlphaTexture, seeing if I could apply it to the FlipBooks "Alpha and Mask" materials, but seems to be a no go, and as you have already mentioned it also uses a different AlphaTexture. Meaning that you are not able to use the Alpha, Fade In, and Fade Out attributes with the FlipBooks.
