Sample text

That’s to say that the particles try to find their target, then are passed to a new event, and after four frames they try to find their nearest target again; because of their velocity, they may have traveled out of the influence of the original target and a new target may be pulling them towards it. This thus creates the breakup of uniformity we see in the reference material. These particles pass through this feedback loop until they reach a target and/or (for safety) hit an SDeflector object positioned underneath the surface to prevent any particles from missing the target geometry and looping back around!

Information: Same deal as before, but with an even lesser amount of particles as this system is going to deal with a larger influence on the Flame particles. 12 Instance the Flame Large Influence event to create a new event and wire the input of the new event to the output of the PF Source Turbulence event. Label this new event Flame Turbulence. Make the Birth operator unique, and set its Emit Start to 5 and Emit Stop to 305. Information: This time, even though the majority of the system is identical to the previous one, we’ve set a time offset so that this new system is “chasing” BALL OF FIRE the previous one.

Select modifier will select polygons based on the map information we’ll add shortly; so at present this has no effect. This selection is then passed up the stack and the resulting polygons deleted, restricting the visible surface the particles can find. The Mesh Select modifier merely clears the sub-object selection so that the Optimize modifier can work on the entire geometry; this was added to speed up particle calculations, else the system will have to attempt to work out the positions for thousand more particles than necessary!
