Hello, I made a lovely animation. The problem is to render the rain!... The most important to be in the topic I'm afraid

So here is a good rendre of the rain for me :

But it's 64 colors !!!! (Because I used transparency for the rain... Oops)

The. I tried some no transparent rain, and I'm not very happy with it :



Something's wrong, isn't it ? The colors ? Or the animation, or the length of the lines?.. I don't know. Help me please !


I think it's better with less rain finally and straight. The main scene is more readable.
