Disable all particles from spawning

Recommended Posts

When you have placed particles all over the animation and properly animated keyframes to trigger, clear, etc, then you want to scroll throught the timeline and it's hell because it lags as particles spawn.

A button where you can disable all particles from spawning in order to move smoothly the timeline is needed. Hiding them doesn't work, they are still spawned just hidden. And you would need to go one by one disabling it each time.

 

Same goes for clicking on each individual keyframe that spawns them to disable the spawn checkbox.

 

We just need a button that globally actually stops particles from spawning when enabled, not just hidding it which saves no resources.

We already have this. You can toggle particles for the camera and work camera in the same way you can apply the rule of thirds and the cinemascope.

There is literally a spawn particle check box on the creator or you could just turn off spawn constantly in the editor.

No it doesn't.

That doesn't mean they aren't there. Simply making you're not able to see them doesn't work.

I don't know about disabing all the particle creators at once, but to disable one at a time, you could just

uncheck "Spawn Particles" in the options of the particle after

selecting all at once using the "select all keyframes" thing?

It's with the "Hide/Mute" and "Lock/Unlock" buttons, next to the particle creator's name to the left of the timeline itself.

The whole point of this thread and what im talking about is to avoid all those unnecesary steps.

Im just exposing the logic behind "Let's not add useful things in mineimator because there is an annoying way to do it".

You may think its annoying but your just being lazy. Your pause keybind wasn't even important, and it isnt that hard to go to the particle creator and turn off "spawn particles"

You are objectively wrong.

The sheer amount of downvotes being thrown around in this topic is ridiculous.

moniker, please just stop arguing with everyone and going on a downvote-spree. It's not making you look any better and is honestly making many people no longer take your suggestions seriously.

I believe pressing "c" clears particles but it's not a perfect fix. Sorry.
