so i have my fragmented shelled plane of big ben and have broken it in to bits then reconnected the bits and made it in to a shape instance in particle flow. but the particle shapes are all at strange angles how do i get them to sit exactly as the original plane shape before i throw my missile through it?

Reset X-Form? (might wanna align the pivot first to the center of your fragments)

Btw, what do you mean by:

broken it in to bits then reconnected the bits

?

Ummmm.....I am a bit confused about what you said but If I you have used Pflow for the blast then you could use the rotation operator for your need....

check this tutorial by loran:

Anslem,

on your vid there(sweet btw), i have a few questions.

1. how did you animate the fracture splitting apart (deflector, birth, age test)?
2. when the chunks collide with the ground, how did you model the smaller debris(was it just a standard shap instace, or did you split up the bigger chunks again)?

cheers

its a spherical deflector actually, simple collision test ;)


2. when the chunks collide with the ground, how did you model the smaller debris(was it just a standard shap instace, or did you split up the bigger chunks again)?

thats another collision test with the ground deflector and a simple shape operator (CUBE) in the next event. i was lazy to build all in one single flow wich is possible! so i copied mostly everything from the first flow and edited only the last event which has a shape mark. i would suggest to instance the events even to make sure the shape mark flow does EXACT the same...but works liek this too ;)

kind regards,
anselm
