View Full Version : particle Motion

11 November 2003, 07:19 AM
there is a demoscene in the "scenes\_features\particles_dynamics " folder called Demo_AtomicBomb.lws

The bomb is made of 3 emitters and some collisions. That`s ok. But there is another scene in "ParticleFX" folder called fxspaneplaybombs.lws - the motion of the first scene is loaded and played on ONE emitter.

My question is how can you save the motion of 3 particle systems and load them into one ??? That sounds very strange to me..

come, on! anybody?

i know how to save and load emitters but i have never tried to load 3 into 1, i will expirement and see if it possible and how it is done.

I wonder if there is a way to save the 3 emmiters as one effect, then reload it as one using one of those FX_Start or End or whatever things in Layout? I would try it out if I was somewhere that had Lightwave installed, but I'm at my girlfriends house for Thanksgiving. :shrug:

hmmm thats a really good question!
ill look into it...
hmm, too bad pfx are hexidecimal when opened with a text editor so that wont help.

wonder if theres a script to merge pfx files?

someone will know.

Happy Turkey day!
And those of you who dont celebrate, then happy plain ol' day to you! :)

well i started wonder is it really first scene the source of the second... i don`t know. But the 2 particle systems looks exactly the same.

I wonder why if this possible NewTek didn't describe it like many other thing :rolleyes: :bowdown: I now this scenes and I have wondered too.

I think it's something to do with using the 'parent recorded cp option' in fx properties dialogue.

check 17.15 of your manual.

"Record CP" option only make the emitter to start on a collision event, but there is still the question how to import 3 emitters in one.. Please if someone knows the answer, write about it.:cry:
