hello

i have looked everywhere for an xpresso ( or thinking particles ) gun tutorial, but no joy.

the tutorial showed how to shoot a particle and that particle would leave a hole on the collision object that it hit. I cant remember where i saw it but it was some time ago.

any help finding this much appreciated

I would let the particle stick on the object it hits and then use the proximal shader and displacement to create the hole.

thanks Björn

actually that tut by 3d kiwi turned out to be the wrong thing for what i need. i am building something that is half working now from studying stuff from your website and others.

i am not actually needing to make a hole but leave a texture on contact.

so what you have suggested is what i am trying to crack now.

really actualy enjoying figureing thinking particles out - mixing in a bit of mograh too . .

ill post a file if i get it working

thanks Björn

your files are always very helpfull

is there a reason why you have set the scorch particles to active behind the actual impact/collision point ?

pedro

edit : sorry that was not very clear

the scorch particles do not emit exactly where the projectile impacts with the plane object. is there a reason for that ?

The original idea for that setup was to simulate not only the impact but firey particles spreading out from the impact and scorching the material around it.
In that it will most likely differ from what you want to do.
