    Hello everyone! I've been working on a health bar for my game, and I thought it would be really cool to have a heartbeat display on top of the health bar! I did that with a particle and using Velocity over Lifetime Curves. The desired outcome is this:
    However it is very inconsistent, sometimes doing this:

    This is my first time working with Unity's Particle System so I have no idea what could be causing this,
    Some info you might find useful:
    Auto Random Seed is false,
    Start Speed is 0,
    I'm not using Limit Velocity over Lifetime,
    Trail Min Vertex Distance is 0.

    If you need more information I'm willing to clarify. Please let me know if you know what could be causing this.
    Thank you in advance!
