Now, under the…Particle System we have got a number of different tabs here. We have got the…actual Particle System itself, which is really just positional, where is this…positioned. Then we have 1 or 2 ParticleShape tabs. Then we also have what's…called a Spray and that's for the type of emitter that it is. This is actually…kind of a directional emitter. Then we also have the nucleus, which is…basically the physics controls of this Particle System, and we will get into…
