Although we will be both creating and working with…the particle flow source icon on a number of…occasions throughout the duration of this course, because there…are a number of controls that are specific to…the icon itself, we're going to use the next…two videos to, not only become familiar with the…available parameters, but at the same time, consider how…altering those parameters can affect our particle flow work.…Probably the first thing…we will need to know is just how we…go about creating a particle flow source in our scene.…
To demonstrate how we do this, we will need to…come across to our command panel and in the geometry…section of the create tab, we can access the drop…down list and then select the particle systems option from it.…Now as well as giving us access to 3DS Maxis…older, non-event driven, particle systems, it is from here that we're…given, as our very first button in fact, the…ability to add a particle flow source to our scene.…Creating one follows the same basic procedure as is…used with the creation of many 3DS Max objects.…
