I tried to make a timed particle burst and a correct movement.
This is my test show, anyone knows how to time the particles right and get the right flow and fade out?

Not easy to control particles

Nice concept!

I think it can be simplified: the same can be done with only a single particle layer. Here's how I would do it:

Make all particle layers invisible, except layer 10: unmark the VISIBLE checkbox for layers 4, 5, 8 and 9

Go to layer 10
Set the time to 3 seconds
Delete all keys: hold down the <Shift> key and click on the DELETE KEY button

Launch the particles upwards: set the LAUNCH DIRECTION prop to (72, -10, 90). This corrects the rotation of the parent layer

Make the particles fall downwards: set the GRAVITY prop to (0, -100, 0)

Increase the lifetime: set the LIFETIME prop to 8

Make them bounce less on the mirror: set the BOUNCING prop to 0.1

To start and stop the particles, create 4 keyframes:
At 0.500: set the EMISSION prop to 0
At 1.000: set the EMISSION prop to 600
At 3.000: set the EMISSION prop to 600
At 4.000: set the EMISSION prop to 0

With only a single particle layer it's easier to adjust and finetune the show. It also solves the discontinuities.

Another idea that came out from under ... gold bars! 🤩 Thank you Filip, and Michiel for the refining beyond 18 carats! 😁

Thnx Michiel, I see you're a real follower of Leonardo Da Vinci: “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.” 😊

Thnx All. I recommend you edit the show with use of the tips from Michiel.
