View Full Version : particles path popping

hi,

I'v got some particles following a spline with the PathFollow spacewarp. Actually, they don't just follow the spline but they swirl around it... My spline shape is a big 'gamma' sign (greek letter gamma that is).

Now, the particles follow that spline along the offset and with a constant speed. The problem is that at some points on the spline the particles tend to 'pop' to the other side of the spline. They continue their movement quite well, it's just that they seem te be changing their spline-side all of a sudden...

Any ideas?


p.s. : I'm trying to construct this with corner tangents as well, same problem there....

try using the speed by icon operator in pflow and then constrain the icon to the path using a regular path constraint
