The Life effect is a random particle growth type effect. It is designed to imitate colonies of microbes as they replicate and grow. When set to a high cell start count, it resembles old fashioned TV snow. When set to a low Cell Start count, it can be made to somewhat resemble confetti.
Speed: The speed at which the particles progress
Cells to Start: The number of pixels or “colonies” at the beginning of the effect.
Type: This applies different variations to the growth pattern.
Color: One or more colors/gradients used randomly for each particle.
Intensity: The overall brightness envelope over the duration of the effect.
