Easiest way to have particle effects in UI elements

I am trying to put particle effects into ui, so when something happens i would like to have particle effects to play over UI element. I tried everything, different cameras, layers etc…but no luck. What is the correct way of doing this? Any help appreciated!

Hi @mirkoni,

Not sure if it’s officially supported (@yaustar) to have a particle emitter on a UI screen.

But there are ways around this, check this post: Particle effects on 2D screen - #5 by mvaligursky

There are issues around the using particle in the UI screen mentioned here Particle System Screen Space and Local Space not rendered correctly · Issue #3724 · playcanvas/engine · GitHub

There are some workarounds mentioned in the issue if you are happy to live with any of those
