Join Brian Bradley for an in-depth discussion in this video Why the mParticle Flow is different, part of Up and Running with Particle Flow in 3ds Max.
Although they are most certainly a part of the…overall particle flow setup, M or mass effects particles are…never-the-less different enough in their operation to merit being…given their own separate designation inside the particle flow system.…The same is true of the M particle flow, though its basic makeup is pretty much the…same as a standard flow, the manner in…which it operates is certainly different enough to merit…its own video in this chapter.…To demonstrate the difference, probably the best thing we can do,…is is make a side by side comparison with a standard flow.…
Taking a look at how the m particle flow…differs in terms of set up and particle behavior.…Now we already have, as you can see, a…standard flow setup and in position in our start scene.…And if I just go ahead and hit play in the animation controls, you can see that…what we get is expected standard flow behavior.…The particles travel along the icon arrow's direction at a fixed speed.…We can see them in the viewport, displayed as ticks, and we can tell from…
