Help! Scale Size by life in Niagara

So I’m incredibly new to both VFX and Niagara, I’m doing a course on VFX as well as attempting to convert cascade tutorials over to niagara (which I assume is easier for more experienced people) however I’m at a point where I need to use the ‘scale size by life’ module, but for the life of me I cant find it or an alternative for it in Niagara anywhere, anyone got any tips? :slight_smile: Thank you in advanced

Use the “Scale X Size”, it being a Sprite or a Mesh, your choice!

1

Then, using that dropdown arrow, type in “curve” and select “Scale by Curve”

2

Now you’ll be able to define an initial value for the scale, and you’ll be able to edit a curve that multiplies that initial value by X.

Time 0 = particle birth. Time 1 = particle death.

Value 0 = Initial Value * 0. Value 1 = Initial Value * 1. You can set a higher number for the value, thus multiplying the initial value by that number.

Hope this was useful :sparkles:

Absolute legend thank you so much, I had tried the curve before hand but couldn’t get the settings right, not until I’d seen your step by step photos, incredibly helpful thank you very much :slight_smile:
