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

that's a "Ch" pronounced as a "K"

Computer skills I should have:
Objective C, C#, Java, MEL. Python, C++, XML, JavaScript, XSLT, HTML, SQL, CSS, FXScript, Clips, SOAR, ActionScript, OpenGL, DirectX
Maya, XSI, Photoshop, AfterEffects, Motion, Illustrator, Flash, Swift3D

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?
