Particle transparency question

PostWed Oct 14, 2015 5:01 pm


New to Fusion and using Fusion 8 b2 on OSX but...

When I try and lower the alpha of particles they become additive. When I try and use the 'additive - subtractive' slider under the 'merge controls'. Nothing happens.
How else can I make particles transparent without them becoming additive and super bright? Trying to make subtle smoke and I don't want to have to lover the overall opacity at the particle renderer end as the effect becomes too clunky.

Did you use the "Alpha Gain"? If you set that to 0 while you are in the "Normal" apply mode, they will indeed become additive.

You should just use the "Blend" slider :)
