Particles - how to make them "die" earlier?

Hello, I have an emitter that follow a path (it’s a baked animation), and when it reach the end of the path there’s something like an “explosion” effect.

When the “explosion” effect happen I’d like to make all the particles “die” quickly (in other terms, I’d like all the particles fade-out during the explosion).
I gave a look to the particle “age” property, but I can’t understand how I could use it for this purpose (or maybe there’s a better way?)
Many thanks!

Simply calling particleSystem.stop() should be what you need for that

You can try fading out the alpha of each particle in the same custom update function that creates the explosion at the end, like this for example. :slight_smile:
