Method #

This node colours particles based on their life using a gradient generated by interpolating between four colour values. Weights and scales are all summed and normalised, so creating increasing the value of one proportionally decreases the value of others.

Parameters

These properties control the core behaviours of the node.

ParameterDetails
Life Colour 0The first colour the particles are given.
Life Colour 1The second colour the particles are given.
Life Colour 2The third colour the particles are given.

WeightsHow much time is spent on each colour for all particles after spawn.
ScalesScale the time spent on each weight.
WeightHow much the colour shading affects the colour of the particles.
