HelloEffects tutorial


going through the tutorial I just tested HelloEffects and saw a nice ‘explosion’…

Changing line 31

ParticleMesh.Type. (Ctrl space) there are three possibilities

Triangle, the default works

Point, works


java.lang.IllegalStateException: Unrecognized particle type: Line

So, I can not trust the “Ctrl space” shown possibilities?

Well yes you can, but not everything you can do makes sense. Particles are normally images on a quad and thus require the triangle type. Line particles are simply not supported but other mesh types do support Lines, thats why the opotion is also there with Effects.

Thanks, I will try to remember :wink:

We should probably remove that option, line particles don’t have many uses …
