I have noticed some of my particle effects are not working correctly anymore after updating to the new build 2018.3310... but I have not updated for a long time and now I'm not sure if something was changed over the last months?

 

Does anybody have some info on changes to particleDesigner particles over the last months?

 

Any help welcome!

 

EXAMPLE: I have used a particle for a rocket smoke trail which was placing emitted particles on the map exactly where they were emitted... but now they are always moved with the rocket and I did no changes.

It will be because of the absolutePosition changes made a while ago and it is not backwards compatible.

Ah... okay. Now I get it: So with object.absolutePosition=true this should work again fine, like before, right?

 

But it is a hassle to look through all the effects which ones had the "true" set in the first place.

 

Is there a way to look up this in code (json files) ? So I don't have to check an old version and compare it to the new one?
