ParticleEditor:Tutorials:Creating an Emitter

Before creating an emitter, we will need a Glue project with either a Screen or Entity. We’ll add our emitter to an Entity to make it reusable.

To add a new emitter file:

  1. Right-click on an Enity’s Files in Glue (.emix files can also be added to Screens or Global Content Files)
  2. Select “Add File”->”New File”
  3. Select “Emitter List (.emix)” as the file type
  4. Click OK

Selecting the newly-created file will display the Emitter plugin:

Newly-created .emix files are empty, so we will need to add an emitter. Note that .emix files can contain one or more emitters. To add an emitter:

  1. Right-click on the empty area on the left side of the plugin view
  2. Select “Add emitter…”
  3. Enter a name for the new Emitter
  4. Click OK
