Join Rob Garrott for an in-depth discussion in this video Working with particle forces, part of Cinema 4D Essential Training: 9 Particles and Dynamics.
The Emitter Objects spits out particles into the scene, but they pretty much…just go in a straight line or whatever direction they were going in when they…came out of the Emitter.…Particle Forces allow you to modify the particles after they come out of the Emitter.…Let's create a Particle Emitter.…Let's go to the Simulate Menu and under the Particles, let's tear off this Menu.…I'll Highlight those double lines and then remove that and let's just park…that right over here.…Now what I want to do is to add an Emitter to the scene and let's spit out a lot of particles.…
I'll hit Play on the keyboard.…You can see we've just got a few particles here.…Let's go into the Particle Menu and change that to, say, 500 x 500.…Now we've got a lot of particles coming out.…We're not going to be using an object under here for now,…we just want to see what the particles themselves are doing.…And this will give us a good visual indicator.…These objects underneath the Emitter are the Particle Forces, and the Particle…
