I must be doing something wrong. because what I want to do seems to be so simple, yet the results are all wrong.
I need a particle system that has emitter moving on x and y axes for lets say 5 seconds and then loops the same movement.
1 I make a new emitter in empty particle system.
2 In “required” module i set Emitter duration to 5.0
3 add an “initial location” module and set start distribution to “Distribution Vector Constant Curve” and check “Is Looped”
4 add three points with In Val 0.0, 2.5 and 5 (to set the position of emitter at the begining, middle and end… that is fifth second)
5 change the Out Val on only the middle point to x=150 (leave other coordinates at 0 to get a simple loop of emitter going from side to side)
Now I get movement of the emitter, however I get movement for only one second, its just a fifth of the planned animation, then the emitter stops; stays on spot for 4 more seconds, and then just snaps back to the starting location, and loops this
What is wrong?
I have noticed that if I set “In Val” to 0.0, 0.5 and 1 i get the full animation (back and forth) but it happens in just one second, and nothing happens for the rest 4 seconds.
Is there somewhere else where I need to set something to get the animation to stretch through all 5 seconds of duration of emitter (and loop).
Thank you in advance, I already lost too much time on this one
