Hey Guys
I have the popcornFX learning package and it has a popcorn mesh template. 
I want to use this particle  but instead of using the popcornFx with the mesh flying everywhere,
is there a way to freeze the effect at a certain point to use as a prop/particle?
Thanks

I'm not english language friendly so I don't understand your request...
Can you be more specific on which particle do you use ?  
Do you want to freeze the velocity of the particles and they stay in the air ?

My Bad I should have used different terminology. 
Instead of using freezing I should have said static.
So when you press Shift+S to simulate the effect

So I was using the mesh effect using popcorn as the mesh.  is there a way ( once I press shift + S)  to create a static or still effect
to the mesh emitter. So instead of it moving, it's still. 

Does that make sense?

the shift+S is only to run your particle in looping mode without hit the play button of your scene , it's just a sort of an endless running preview to see
the different behavior by changing the settings.
You can make sort of freeze/stop after hiting the play button then stop .
