Vortex

This particle allows you to define an axis as a vortex, so the particles will spin around this axis.

Layer Properties

Use the Vortex Module's Layer Properties panel to adjust the effect's parameters.

Trigger: Is an on/off switch using binary code, where 1 = on, while 0 = off.
X Direction: Defines the X portion of the axis of rotation for the Vortex.
Y Direction: Defines the Y portion of the axis of rotation for the Vortex.
Z Direction: Defines the Z portion of the axis of rotation of the Vortex.
Radius: Defines the radius at the top of the vortex.
Exponent (1=cone): Defines a curve that gives the Vortex a certain silhouette. 1 forms a cone, greater than 1 curves inward.
Up Acceleration: Defines the vertical acceleration of the particles that are inside the Vortex.
In Acceleration: Defines the inward acceleration of particles that are outside the Vortex.
Around Acceleration: Defines the acceleration around the vortex of particles that are inside the Vortex.
