HI, all, Can anybody help me with particle issue I'm having. I'm trying to create a sandy_dust scene. But I can't seem to tint the particles. I have changed the initial color and also the Scale color life. I have checked each setup to check for white color, but nothing. But for some reason there must be one set to white. As you can there are some white clouds :-( I want them brownish.

    Do you have "particle color" node in the material?

    Hi Obscura. Thanks for you're reply. What do you mean particle color node in the material. What I have seen on tutorials that you change the color thru the initial color / and scale color life settings. I have managed to find most of them. Setting them to brownish color, but one particle is still white. Do you mean changing these settings is not enough? and must change the source partcle color too?

    In order to get those to work (any color related setting), you need to have particle color node in your material.

    Hi i have been gathering info, but looking at the node. I can't seem to adjust the color. I think the particles came from free pack. 
    Its a snow pack P_Blizzard. As you mention I need to fix the particle colour first. And not in Cascade. I looked at the matertial, see my screenshot but i can't tint the color. Or do I need to change the color of the texture.

    Can you show a more zoomed out screenshot of this?

    The particle color node needs to be multiplied with the incoming texture or color nodes before plugging it into the base color or emissive input. I cant tell from your screenshot if this is already there or not.

    Hi, ofcourse. I haven't made this as I'm just using it for my personal project. The particle setup uses 8 materials. Its basicly a snow blizzard,, but I want to turn into sandy storm look. I was hoping that I could fix this Cascade changing the colors as mentioned. But the material setups are nearly all the same, but without color controles. Hope you see a solution.

    Are they from the particle effects example project? The material setups seems to be correct.

    Hey. I downloaded the project and checked out the p_blizzard effect. I managed to change its color without adding anything extra. 


    On this screenshotss, I disbled the other emitters to better see the effect. The ones I marked are the ones creating the smoke.

    Hey,  Obscura. I got it working. I feel like  a big fool. I had the scrollbar of the window to the right.. So it was only showing 5 particles  emitters...So the first two I didn't see// adjust :-( SILLY ME. They were still set to white. I've hardly done anything yet with Cascade. When I hear that you had to adjust the material I was more confused. I'll post a screenshot shortly.. thanking you ofcourse :-)  Thanks so much again. Cheers.

    Hi Obscura,  Sorry to bother you once more :-) Hope you might have some info on this as well. I'm still getting white color on the particle Flakes_LongLife_Emitter. I have adjusted the color both the Initial Color and Scale color Life to brownish color. As you can see in my screenshot. Unfortunate they are still showing up as white color dots (flakes) I can't understand why this is happening or is this like kinda motion blur effect I'm seeing? If you have any info ont his would be great. Thanks in advanced and have great day.

    Its the emissive part of the material. Once you disconnect it, it starts to show the color you set here.
