I am creating animations in the sandbox 2 and I'm wondering is it possible to freeze a particles system I.E "explosion" so that I can pan the camera around the frozen explosion similar to the matrix movie? I have had situation where particles have frozen in a level do to generating surface textures. This was an unintended occurrence, but very kool looking.
Ultimately I want to capture a vehicle wreak, freeze it and pan around it, then restart it. So is this possible? or ...Is there a way to freeze the game while AI/Physic are engaged?
Any help is greatly appreciated!!!
