Is there a way to convert particles to nparticles?

Cheers,

Untested.

But I can't see why you couldn't just save as an ascii, and then open in text editor, and replace particleShape with nParticleShape, perhaps also the Particle with nParticle.

I did do a very simple test of this, I don't know how complicated your scene is obviously. But replacing Particle with nParticle did work, just had to create a Nucleus solver in the new file.

cheers. I've got a scene where particles are traveling along a curve and am wanting to change these to nparticles to use the surfacing.

Cheers,

Steve
