Returns the “ignore scale” flag. See setIgnoreScale().

gets alpha for “user” alpha mode

output(out: panda3d.core.ostream)

Write a string representation of this instance to <out>.

setAlphaMode(am: ParticleRendererAlphaMode)
setColorBlendMode(bm: panda3d.core.Mode, oa: panda3d.core.Operand, ob: panda3d.core.Operand)

sets the ColorBlendAttrib on the _render_node

setIgnoreScale(ignore_scale: bool)

Sets the “ignore scale” flag. When this is true, particles will be drawn as if they had no scale, regardless of whatever scale might be inherited from above the render node in the scene graph.

This flag is mainly useful to support legacy code that was written for a very early version of Panda, whose sprite particle renderer had a bug that incorrectly ignored the inherited scale.

setUserAlpha(ua: float)

sets alpha for “user” alpha mode

write(out: panda3d.core.ostream, indent: int)

Write a string representation of this instance to <out>.
