Emit emission from ramp


I'd like to be able to use a ramp as a source of particles emmision with bifrost, is this possible?

Basically, I have an elongated character, from it's tail I'd like particles to be emitted - and for the amount of particles being emitted to fade from 1-0 up the character rather than just being cut off at a specific point up the body. I was hoping to use a ramp (that uses the model's UV's) to control this.


I have tried using Maya's nParticles for this, although I couldn't seem to figure out how to make it's particles decrease in size and opacity over their life time, and it was a bit buggier than particle sims that I've managed with Bifrost before...


Any quick help would be greatly appreciated!

You have to bake the ramp into vertexcolors. That should do it.

Thank you, I'll see if I can figure that out!
