Creating particles in 3D

Creating particles in 3D is a lot like creating particles in 2D. So to show you what I mean, go ahead and press the Play button and you notice we have a particle system here. Let me stop playback for a second and press F5 to open the Project pane. And you notice I actually do have a Camera in the scene, so let's switch to Perspective view. And we have in a mirror and if we orbit around, you'll notice this particle system is nice and flat. Two-dimensional.

So let's go to the Inspector and enable 3D and sure enough the particles are in 3D space but they're still flat. So you always want to make sure that Face Camera is checked and that's usually on by default when you check 3D. I specifically had it off for this demonstration, just so I could re-illustrate the point that the particles themselves are not actually 3-dimensional particles. So now as you can see in 3D space, we have a truly 3D particle system.

So we could go through all these options again to create the parti...
