ParticleIllusion Changing Duration

The secret technique is all about how your emitter is set up By Ko Maruyama
There are several tutorials on the wondertouch website, but sometimes seeing a question answered in a Quick Tip is handy way to figure out what needs to get done. In this Quick Tip: Changing the duration of a particleillusion composition doesn't necessarily mean that your particles will abruptly stop. It's all about how your emitter is set up.

Wondertouch's particleillusion is a professional application, which has several controls which might appear obvious, and others which might escape you - especially if you don't have time to sit down and read the tutorials posted on the pi site.  That's okay - there's a ton of information online, including quick tips like this one.  I tried to add a little more information into the movie to answer a couple of questions in one shot.
