ParticleMesh Startup

Hey all. I'm new to jME and I'm having a bit of problem with particles. I'm getting them to display just fine, but they seem to be generating at the origin briefly before being attatched to the node. Even when the release rate is zero, it looks like at least one particle still spawns. Is there any way to fix this?

   Random rand = new Random();
   ParticleMesh particleGeom = ParticleFactory.buildParticles("teleportflare", 150);
   particleGeom.setEmissionDirection(new Vector3f(0,1,0));
                .createBasicGravity(new Vector3f(0, 0.6f, 0), true));
        particleGeom.setInitialVelocity(0.02f +(rand.nextFloat() / 500));


It seems to be a problem with origin offset. Trying to set orgin offset and then warming up particles.

Hmm. No luck there. It'd succesfully offset the particles once attached to the node, but I'm still getting random particles from the origin of the game before I attatch the ParticleMesh to any nodes.

try increasing the warm up amount

Bingo. Thanks for the responses!
