    amazing tuts. thanks and more particles tuts please :).

  • Diederik

    Thanks amazing tuts!
    However I have one problem with the find target in Pflow. When the speed exceeds the ease in some of my particles do not want to stick to my object. I want to have a explosive feeling to this so I would like to turn up the speed. What to do to solve this?


    and keep on making tuts!

    • Im not at home to test it out, but maybe you could try two find target operators. The first would have the high speed with low ease amount and the second with 0 speed and 100 ease. Could work but ill try it out later and let you know

      • Diederik

        Thanks for the quick respond! I have tested some more for myself and I think it’s because of the big difference in speed and standstill so they fly past the target. What I try to get is first an particle explosion and then after an age test they will form a text. But some particles fly past the text.

        I will with 2 target operators.


        • Well put, sir, well put. I’ll ceraitlny make note of that.
