Particle End-Scale property

Hi.
It would be cool to define the lifetime-endscale of a particle. Example:
Particles have a lifetime of 2 seconds. Now, I can define an endscale of 0%, so every particle will be scaled down to 0% between lifestart- and end.

    Yeah, as this was something easily done in VisionLab I expected somthing like that to be there in HitFIlm, and thought I were just too blind to find it... :/

    Does the life time graph is not what you are looking for ? I think it give you enought power, even more than VisionLab.

    To get access to it, you need to click on the 'LifeTime' property which is available only in the composite shot panel inside the Particle Simulator 'Emitters > Emitter > Particle Systems > Particle System > Lifetime'.
    This property will switch the control panel to the LifeTime mode, which is why is not directly accessible inside the control panel itself for now.
    Hope that's what you want :)

    Hi.
    Well, I didn't noticed that - I'll take a look on it, seems to be exactly what I mean - but with more flexibility... 8-|

    Its on the timeline, with the other controls for the layer. Its a separate thing from the Controls panel, so it isn't listed there, you have to access it from the timeline.
