Is it a kind of particle multiplier too? Can it for instance render 100 particles for each individual TP particle?

Well, not directly. You have to do what’s called partitioning. Basically it saves your particles to disk in multiple file sequences (in your case you would need to do 100 partitions (sequences) which is A LOT ), and for each sequence it produces a different seed value. And the partitioning also takes a lot of time, so Krakatoa can’t multiply the number of particles directly. That’s the way it works.

Okay…understood. Thanks.
