Instance Property

sortingMode

The mode defining the order in which SceneKit renders the system’s particles.

Declaration

@property(nonatomic) SCNParticleSortingMode sortingMode;

Discussion

Together with the blendMode property, sorting modes affect the appearance of overlapping particle images when rendered.

For possible sorting modes, see SCNParticleSortingMode. The default value is SCNParticleSortingModeNone, specifying that SceneKit may render particles in arbitrary order.
