Chapter 11. Working with Particles > Customizing the Emitter with the Dashboard

Customizing the Emitter with the Dashboard

When you create particles by clicking the Make Particles icon in the Toolbar, or by pressing E, the parameters of particle system that is created are populated with a set of default values. The first step in customizing the system is usually to adjust the parameters for the emitter to control the overall birth rate, life, scale, direction, spread, and speed of the particle cells—these parameters are all available in the Dashboard (Figure 11.7).

Figure 11.7. The Dashboard lets you adjust parameters for the emitter to control birth rate, life, scale, direction, spread, and speed of particle cells.
