Hi, I'm a little confused with the textures. I working with the preset 'blue lightning', a particle effect.
On the attributes list near the top is a section called 'textures' with options
electric arc horo1
electric arc horo2
electric arc horo3
Are these different options to alter the effect? If so do you have import something or activate something because I've tried drag and drop and nothing seems to work.
I'd really appreciate any tips or advice.

Nope, they're not options - it's just a list of all the particle textures that are used in the effect. Textures are simply small still images that dictate what the particles look like. You can add and remove textures from the list to change the shape of the particles. Hope that helps

No problem. If you need any more help with the particle engine (or really, the entire program) check out the Video Tutorials in the Support section. They're quite useful.
