Opacity of an instance of a replicator according to its age

Is it possible to control the opacity of an instance of a replicator according to its age?

If possible, someone can provide me with an example or link that describes the solution, please.

Thanks in advance.

Hi - I don't think it is possible to do this at the moment. The age of the particle is available from the Modo SDK - but there are no hooks that I am aware of in Octane to use this. At the moment the Particle Id from the replicator is stored in the Octane Scatter node as an Instance Id, which can then be used with the Instance Range and Instance Color nodes, which may help you.

It would be nice to be able to modify any parameter with the age of the particles. In any case very grateful for the explanation.
