Hi, I''m currently using blending techniques for particle effects. But i''m wondering how do you blend like saturation effects, to brighten the texture the particles are overlayed on? I can only think to use white particles in the centre of the "fire effect" (currently im using mixed colors of red). Is there any way i can get a nice contrast effect? Sorry if im not being clear enough. Peace. Phil Price™: Better than cool - uber cool.

For a nice "glowing" effect it''s usually sufficient to set the colour of your particles to a quite dark orangey colour, say, R=50, G=35, B=15 and blend additively. You''ll have to tweak these colours a bit to look perfect in your app of course.
In the example I''ve given you, a few particles will generate a reddish orange, a few more will make yellow, and a lot of particles will create white, as this is the order the channels will be saturated in. I hope that''s the effect you''re after, if not, sorry for cluttering up your thread.
