Hey all,

I've been playing with particle universe and I need a few assets. The most important is a smoke animation. It's an atlas texture like this one from the particle universe examples:

We can't use this one, as the licensing is unclear to me.

It simply plays the frames of the atlas over the lifetime of a particle. I've created a Photoshop template which can be used:

The template applied to a particle looks like this:

The amount of rows and columns can be varied. For example you can have two rows and 4 columns. But best practice is to stay with a size of power of 2 (4x4, 2x2...)
