View Full Version : Pflow Question

Hey everyone,


We are trying to have an emitter send out particles in a straight line as it rotates 360 degrees (think of a spray nozzle rotating slowing in a complete circle).


Even though the nozzle is rotating relatively slow (360 degrees in 10 seconds), there is considerable lag in the particle motion (see attachment).


Speeding up the particles does resolve this somewhat, but the particles then travel to fast to see any rotation or turbulence characteristics as they leave the nozzle.


Any thoughts on how this might be set up?

Animate the camera instead of the pflow emitter? It is your simplest approach. Or is there some specific reason that this cannot be done?
