Hi, I came out a vector field to drive particles according to the field. I haven't tried applying the technique and I didn't really know how, but I was given a direction of using GAS-advect, gasfieldVOP or fieldForce node. However, I have not touch/learn about the "Gas series" of nodes. Is there any place to read about them or understand them better?

Thank you.

Hi,

I highly recommended reading this thesis:
http://nccastaff.bournemouth.ac.uk/jmacey/MastersProjects/MSc09/Claes/thesis/PeterClaesThesis.pdf

Done by Peter Claes. A good friend of mine. You will learn a lot.

There are some tutorials available from the sidefx website.

Glossary on how gas solvers work (fairly old)

Specific to a certain fire model. Although not really applicable to what you are trying to achieve it does create some good and useful insight. (fairly old)
