View Full Version : Any way to set radial field attributes on a per-particle basis?

Hello,

I have a particle system in which I'm using a radial field on a per-particle basis to keep the particles from colliding with each other. So far so good. My question is this: is there any way to set the radial field attributes on a per-particle basis? For example - particle 1 has a radial field magnitude of 5, but particle 2 has a radial field magnitude of 10. A solution that involves setting things by hand is fine - the system itself will only ever have a few dozen particles.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Create a per particle attribute called, radialField1_magnitude.
Then set it as needed. It will control the magnitude of the field on a per particle basis.

Fantastic. Thank you so much. As a follow up, is magnitude the only attribute that can be controlled in a per-particle basis, or can other field attributes also be accessed? I'm thinking of Max Distance, Attenuation, and Radial Type, if possible.

Thanks again.

Other attributes will work too. Just add another per particle attribute to the particle shape.
radialField_attributeName.
