Please don't get angry if this has already been asked before but could some tell me how to increase the amount of frames a particle effect takes up? every preset and my own particle effects all take up 0.2 of a second. I want to do a contnous shot of rain (for my logo) for around 6 seconds. I have a good pre set but i don t know how to increase the time the preset lasts. The only way i can see is by copying and pasting but htat takes the effect right back to the beggining every time.

Use either the drag tool in the toolbox located right above the timeline to extend the length of the particle effect, or you could change the default frame length in the effect engines toolbox.

Masks should last for the same length as the effect.
Are you sure?
