Path Tracing Particles
prints available

In this example, the Particle Component uses a specially modified Particle to trace the path it wanders. The resulting form is somewhat organic in appearance.

Essentially, the first thing each particle does is create a pen positioned over the emitter. Then, for every frame, it uses the drawing API to trace a line following its path. When the particle self-destructs, the path it traced is left behind.
