   * **Number of Files**:The number of material files used. Normally this should just be one, but in some cases an animation needed is spread out over several material files. When using several material files these must be name “[name]01.mat”,​ “[name]02.mat”,​ etc. Also the file text must be just “[name]”. So if the files are called “test01.mat”,​ “test02.mat”,​ etc it must say “test” in the file field.   * **Number of Files**:The number of material files used.

   * **Animation length**: The number of seconds the animation lasts, if the particle lives longer than this time, the animation is looped.   * **Animation length**: The number of seconds the animation lasts, if the particle lives longer than this time, the animation is looped.
-  * **Sub Division**: This is used in order to animate individual particles (when using several files, the material for all particles are changed at the same time). It can also be used for more variety among particles. The sub divisoion is set up by specifying how the texture ​is to be split and then setting ​how the particles will be assigned ​to a sub division.
