public var totalVelocity: Vector3;
public Vector3 totalVelocity;


The total velocity of the particle.

This is calculated as the sum of ParticleSystem.Particle.velocity and ParticleSystem.Particle.animatedVelocity. Some particle features use the physics-based velocity, and other features use the aniamted velocity. Use this property to obtain the total combined velocity of the particle.
