Text to particles question

Postby candymanjl on 07/12/2012, 5:36 am

I was trying to animate a simple title into some simple particles. Ideally if I had a title with 10 letters I would like that to turn into 10 particles or vice versa. Right now even with multi object turned on and individual control of each letter I can't do this.

Currently the title moves as a whole, instead of each individual letter, and turns into the particle. So if I want 10 particles I end up with 10 titles floating around. Am I missing a setting?

Thanks

Well it depends on the font you use. Some cause trouble. Also you should post a screenshot of what's happening so we can help you better.
The reset button was my idea.

Got two video examples I draft exported real quick. One is with multi-object on for the text and one is without. With multi-object on the text kinda trails into each particle which is a step in the right direction but it's still not one letter going to one particle.

I also tried enabling multi-object for the particle group and it didn't effect the animation.
