2.5 - Ribbon Trails Streaming from Other Particles

An overview of the Effects Gallery example level.

Choose your operating system:





The Ribbon TypeData allows you to create trails, which are very useful in all kinds of projectile-based effects. To make them work, you generally need at least 2 particle Emitters:

  • One particle Emitter that emits the source particles (from which the ribbons will spawn) - note that these cannot be GPU particles.

  • One particle Emitter that has a Ribbon TypeData module and a Source module (located in the Trail group) to define which Emitter will be used as the source.
