Join Brian Bradley for an in-depth discussion in this video Breakdown of the Standard Flow, part of Up and Running with Particle Flow in 3ds Max.
Having already seen how we go about creating…and deleting a Standard Flow, we learned in this…video to look a little more deeply at just what is going on inside the Flow itself.…Probably the first thing worth noting is that the Flow consists of two…events, the first being the event named for the PF source it represents.…This event, as we have already noted, is global in nature.…Meaning that, any operators placed in…here, will affect every event in the Flow.…Overriding any other operators of the same…type, that may have been placed downstream.…
To give an example, you can clearly see here in Event 001 that…we have a Shape operator in place and set to generate 3D Cubes.…Now we don't see the Cubes in the viewport at this moment in…time, as we scrub, because the Display operator, which is the one controlling…the viewport representation of our particles is set to Show Ticks.…If I go ahead though and set that to Show Geometry, what we see…in the viewport now are the 3D Cubes being generated by the Shape operator.…
