Complex UV Layout in Maya
Over the last couple of years UV layout in Maya has changed for the better. In this course we're going to be taking a look at some of those changes as we UV map an entire character

Particles won't die (lifespan not working)

So I'm super new to maya and I'm trying to create some snow particles.

Quick explenation:
A character is sliding on it's butt over some snow and some snow clumps etc should be flying away.
Like this:

I set the Lifespan to Constant: 2 (so it should only live 2 frames), but they live forever.
I also tried Random range, which was my original intention, but this doesn't work either.

The particles are emitted from an "Emit from object" emitter. I duplicated the faces on his butt and use these faces to emit the particles from, which works.
