How to hook up Particle effect

PostPosted by rocki » Fri Oct 12, 2012 2:55 pm

Hi,

I'm trying to hook up Visualizer to fire a Particle effect. I watched your demo video and followed the steps but I can't seem to get it working for my effect. Perhaps I'm missing some vital steps, could you help out and have a look to see where I am going wrong.

Here is a screen shot https://dl.dropbox.com/u/48378123/particleTest.tiff

Thanks.

As it is setup, it was created to use the old particle system. So, within the same game object it is attached to, it looks for the "particleEmitter" component, and tries to emit that. I'm not sure if this works with the new particle system though. You may need to update VisEmitParticlesTrigger.OnTriggered() to trigger the appropriate particle component. Does that help?

Hi Andy,

I've been on holidays the last week. Just got back tonight and tried your tip tonight and bingo, it works.

These are the step I took to make it work.
1. Added VisEmitParticlesTrigger to particleSystem game object.
2. Modified VisEmitParticlesTrigger to get a handle on the particleSystem game object.
3. Called .Emit(5)

Thanks again for the great help.

Hi Andy and Ricki, can send me an example of this?
I'm trying to run the script in the new Unity particle system.
Actually I have very little knowledge of code, rather an example would help me to implement in my project.

And Andy, this is a good topic to update the Visualizer Studio.

Thank you very much in advance.

Greetings from Chile!

I'm planning on releasing an update at some point soon in the future. I'll make sure this gets added to the update.
