Join Brian Bradley for an in-depth discussion in this video Running across the surface, part of Learning Particle Flow in 3ds Max 2013.
While setting up the initial collision and splash elements were a very necessary…first step for this part of our process, we are ready in this video…to move on to creating the illusion that some of the rainwater particles falling…are traveling across the surface of our…sculpt geometry in little runs or rivulets.…To get started, we first of all need a method of creating new…rivulet or run particles from at least some of the particles that are being…sent into this event once a collision…has been registered on our scope's U deflector.…
This we have in the form of a split amount test.…So, let's drag one of those from the depot and drop…it into our event, placing it just below the false operator.…This test, if I just select it, gives us the ability by means of a number…of criteria to split off a certain amount…of particles existing inside an event, and pipe…them into a different one.…Inside of which of course we can then apply new look and behavior controls.…In this instance, we're going to make use of the every nth particle option.…
