For Educators
Particle Systems are surprisingly versatile. With just a few changes to a Particle System’s modules, you can produce a wide variety of effects. In this tutorial, you will create a brand new Particle System and configure its modules to create snow or rain in the scene.
By the end of this tutorial, you'll be able to:
  • Set up a new Particle System in the scene.
  • Configure a Particle System's main properties, such as lifetime, size, and max particles by modifying the Main module.
  • Control the location and initial direction of particles by modifying the Shape module.
  • Control the rate and timing of particles by modifying the Emission module.
  • Control the appearance of individual particles by modifying the Renderer module.
