i gots a big problem now though i made some particle effects and i don't know how to make them stop after a certain frame and its really bothering me cause there is no end frame option...
yeah... don't do that (the lack-of-space), a lot of new programmers do that with all the operators and even though they aren't all letters it's a real pain in the ass to read. maybe if we were brought up to read like the japanese then it would be different *jealous*

particle's can be stopped by keying the rate (as Genny said).

although, the remaining particles will still exist until they die. so you also have to play with the lifespan

keyframes helped alot and once i texture this particle ill have a really cool effect for a spell im making and ill have to just paste it in when i need it.


getting a bit more technical into the movie editing part of this, should i render every frame or like every half frame for the video? mainly looking for quality because i don't care to much about render time

also if i do a slow motion scene should i render more frames than that for that section like.... 1/8 frames?
