Detailed Description

Use this interval when you want to have greater control over a
ParticleEffect.  The interval does not register the effect with
the global particle and physics managers, but it does call upon
them to perform its stepping.  You should NOT call
particleEffect.start() with an effect that is being controlled
by a ParticleInterval.

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

◆ __init__()

def __init__ (   self,
  worldRelative = 1,
  renderParent = None,
  duration = 0.0,
  softStopT = 0.0,
  cleanup = False,
  name = None 
particleEffect is a ParticleEffect
parent is a NodePath: this is where the effect will be
              parented in the scenegraph
worldRelative is a boolean: this will override 'renderParent'
                    with render
renderParent is a NodePath: this is where the particles will
                    be rendered in the scenegraph
duration is a float: for the time
softStopT is a float: no effect if 0.0,
              a positive value will count from the
              start of the interval,
              a negative value will count from the
              end of the interval
cleanup is a boolean: if True the effect will be destroyed
              and removed from the scenegraph upon
              interval completion
              set to False if planning on reusing
              the interval
name is a string: use this for unique intervals so that
          they can be easily found in the taskMgr
