View Full Version : Particle/Fluid Interaction

04 April 2008, 05:17 PM
Having trouble adding particles to a fluid.
Goal is to move particles with fluid forces.
Idealy, particles would also interact with themselves.

Let me know if you have any ideas.

Select Particles, shift select fluid shape go to fields > affect selected objects. Play with the conserve on particles to control the amount the fluid takes over from particle movement.

To have particle interaction create a radial field and use selected as source of field, apply per vertex for example. Or you could create 2 particle shapes and make each a goal, animating goal weights and applying noise, depends on what type of interaction you are talking about.
