Poetic Particles

In this example, the simple particle graphic of the Particle Emitter component has been replaced with something slightly more complex. Instead of a graphic shape, a dynamic text box was used. The text box is assigned a word at random upon its creation.

About once every second, the emitter creates a new word particle. The particles starts small and slowly expands to full size over the course of its lifetime. Just before it self-destructs, it spends the last 5 percent of its life fading into oblivion. The result is the somewhat poetic display of a relaxed particle field.
