Join Brian Bradley for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating a reaction: Part two, part of Animating in 3ds Max: Constraints, Controllers, and Wire Parameters.
- [Instructor] As noted at the conclusion of…the previous exercise, we currently have…our master object set up and so we now need…to add the object that we want…to control to the reaction manager list.…Let's open up the reaction manager dialogue then,…if it isn't already, and use, not the add master button…this time, but add slave instead.…For that to become active, though,…we will need our master entry in the list to be selected.…After clicking we can select the slave object,…which in this case needs to be the panicle flow source…that is creating the fountain effect.…
Now we could try and pick this from the scene…in the view port if we like,…but a much easier way would be to simply hit the page key…and in the pick object dialogue that appears,…select the PF source 001 object from the list…and then hit the pick button.…We now get to select which aspect of the particle system…we want the reaction to control.…So let's select the PF source, event 001,…speed 001, options, where we can…eventually choose the speed option.…
