To speed things along, I've prepared a Nuke script. So let's go up to File > Open > Project Media > Lesson_06_Media, script number 03 Forces. Open that. I've got a Particle Emitter all set up. So all we have to do is a cursor, and the viewer, and type F to wake it up, and we will pull back a little bit.

How about a little more screen space, so we can see our particles better? Very good! Okay, and then we'll play. So we have a nice little stream of particles emanating from origin, moving vertically in line, with just a little bit of spread out, and not too great a velocity; that'll make it easier for us to see the action. Let's see about the ParticleDirectionalForce. I'll hook it up to this node; double-click. Now, the Particle Directional Force does exactly what you would think: it...
