Animating Path Offset of Text/Mask Emitter issues

Support ForumCategory: QuestionsAnimating Path Offset of Text/Mask Emitter issues
Will Poillion asked 5 years ago


I have an emitter set to text/mask type. I wanted to narrow down the section along the path where the particles are emitting from, so I set Path Trim to my liking and am keyframing the offset so the particles get emitted along the path but different sections. The issue is whenever the path offset changes, all of the pre-existing particles move as well as if they were emitting from the new location from the start.

I’m not sure how to turn this off. On the emitter, I set

  1. Layer Properties > Layer Time Sample – On Birth
  2. Path Properties -> Move With Emitter – Set entire graph to be 0 throughout

I can’t find any other settings that would be causing this. Any help would be most appreciated!
