Anyone know how to get FXlinked particles to stop spinning once they bounce and come to a stop on a floor collision obj?

Anyone know if you can spin particles using wind somehow?
It seems you cant spin a dot, so FXlinker is faking it....

I am making popcorn bounce off the floor and come to a stop....as of now they land and spin violently even though the particles have stopped moving completely....
once again this seems like there is a simple answer, I just cant see it right now! :(

hopefully you all can!

hmm... not too sure. My guess would be that *IF you can access particle rotation via expressions or maybe lscript, you can have the rotation tied to the movement of the particle.

uhm, well is that possible?
....seems like something that should of been thought of when FXlinker was created huh?...i mean who would want to use a particle system to make something bounce off the floor, spin and come to a stop?

:hmm:

im hoping there is a combination I havent tried that someone will come up with?
