How can I get a PopcornFXEmitter using a simulation cache to spawn infinitely in UE4? Can't see any blueprint function for this and the spawner script in my effect sets Life = infinity; currently. I also tried checking if the emitter is alive and restarting with a blueprint but this creates a visible delay.

Thanks!

Hi,

We don't have an automatic loop capability in UE4 unfortunately.

Using a simulation cache overrides all particle lifes (https://wiki.popcornfx.com/index.php/CActionFactoryParticleSpawnerBase#Spawn), I guess you could use RestartEmitter (without killing particles), so it reduces visual artefacts of killing existing particles or just spawn another instance every x seconds.

Cheers
