,Particle System - Throwing Effect

I’m work on creating a similar type of effect seen here (Timestamp: 3:00) where the player basically “throws” a particle system source onto the copper in this 3d platformer tutorial: Unity Emotiv Tutorial - YouTube

I was wondering how I could get started in programming such a particle system, or whether anyone has any suggestions on where to look…

You might try by having the character throw a projectile (GameObject) that has the particle emitter attached to it

Unity Tutorial 01: Part 3: "Prefabs, Shooting, Basic Physics" - YouTube has a simple description that always made sense to me for spawning projectiles

- YouTube is a pretty nice overview of the particle emitter
