An Industry Lesson

What we want to do now is create a drag spacewarp to slow the velocity down as the particle dust leaves the body of the emitter. So go back to the spacewarps and drag a drag spacewarp out. Although the position of this spacewarp isn't too important, position it next to the wind spacewarp since we're trying to make a particle kit to clone for the other particle systems.

Bind the drag spacewarp to the particle system and from there adjust the X and Y axis' to 10 and the Z axis to 25. This way the front and side velocity's slow down but the verticle velocity slows down the most, so the particles begin to slow down as they leave the body. Play the animation, now it should look better.

But to add a bit more uneveness to the particles go back to the wind spacewarp and adjust the turbulence value to .25 and the frequency to .2 and lastly the scale to .2. This will just make the particles swirl a little bit more and break up a little. If you play the animation now it should look a lot better, emitting out and then slowing down.
