CLuaEmitter

List of all possible functions available for LuaEmitters. This is the object returned by the ParticleEmitter function.

Methods

CLuaParticle CLuaEmitter:Add( string material, Vector position )
Creates a new CLuaParticle with the given material and position.
CLuaEmitter:Draw()
Manually renders all particles the emitter has created.
CLuaEmitter:Finish()
Removes the emitter, making it no longer usable from Lua. If particles remain, the emitter will be removed when all particles die.
number CLuaEmitter:GetNumActiveParticles()
Returns the amount of active particles of this emitter.
Vector CLuaEmitter:GetPos()
Returns the position of this emitter. This is set when creating the emitter with ParticleEmitter.
boolean CLuaEmitter:Is3D()
Returns whether this emitter is 3D or not. This is set when creating the emitter with ParticleEmitter.
boolean CLuaEmitter:IsValid()
Returns whether this CLuaEmitter is valid or not.
CLuaEmitter:SetBBox( Vector mins, Vector maxs )
Sets the bounding box for this emitter. Usually the bounding box is automatically determined by the particles, but this function overrides it.
CLuaEmitter:SetNearClip( number distanceMin, number distanceMax )
This function sets the the distance between the render camera and the emitter at which the particles should start fading and at which distance fade ends ( alpha becomes 0 ).
CLuaEmitter:SetNoDraw( boolean noDraw )
Prevents all particles of the emitter from automatically drawing.
CLuaEmitter:SetParticleCullRadius( number radius )
The function name has not much in common with its actual function, it applies a radius to every particles that affects the building of the bounding box, as it, usually is constructed by the particle that has the lowest x, y and z and the highest x, y and z, this function just adds/subtracts the radius and inflates the bounding box.
CLuaEmitter:SetPos( Vector position )
Sets the position of the particle emitter.
