The self namespace contains all particle-related functions and variables.


Return typeDescription
Life-ratio of the particle, in the [0, 1] range.
Inverse life of the particle: life = 1.0f / self.invLife.
The simulation internally stores the inverse life for performance reasons, and this is kept explicit with self.invLife, which will produce an efficient direct memory read. If you need the life instead of inverse life, you can use rcp(self.invLife) or 1 / self.invLife.
voidself.kill(bool condition)
if condition is true, kills the particle this frame.
Returns true if the simulation for this particle is running in deterministic mode, false otherwise.
