The Freeze Tag

This tag can be used to halt X-Particles completely at a particular frame, then restart it again. Do not confuse it with the Freeze modifier, which is very different!

This tag will halt everything done by X-Particles - particle motion, trail generation, object and sprite generation, etc. Note that particle ages will NOT increase while the system is frozen!

Interface

The tag's interface looks like this:

For the buttons at the bottom of the interface, please see the 'Common interface elements' page.
