As I read in the manual, it's possible to change the speed of a non-loopable effect -> how??? I know how to stretch loopable material but change the speed....????

Part of Manual:

"...If the effect is a non looping animation, like an explosion, the the effect is as many frames as the animation and it cannot be stretched; only made faster or slower..."

Please help!

BTW: What is the different between Interface Type 1 and 2???

Regards,
Marc

When you open up the effect interface (the one where you see only the effect you selected) From here, go to the top menu click Effect->Effect Length. Select the percent you want to make it longer or shorter by.

Interface 1: Basically you select the four corners of the quad. (better for use with lightsabers and such)
Interface 2: Is the default interface, where you have the quad, already on there.

Okay, I've searched for a click-drop command to do that. Thank you very much!
