View Full Version : Molecular Animation, Bring together 2 particles?

Hey everyone,
I'm working on a molecular animation. I've isolated the molecules for H2O, which turn into hydroxide molecules and a hydrogen ion which floats to the top.

I need two, and only two hydroxide ions (white spheres) to connect with each other. (Turning into Hydrogen gas!)

All levels of faking this could be used, bringing particles close and then swapping geometry. I could get so crappy that I just swap geometry to a 2 sphere model which would effectively double the count.

Any suggestions? I don't have Box 2 or 3 sadly. I'm using Max 2010, but I could jump this to 2011 if there was something I could use.

Thanks for any advise I can get out there!
