View Full Version : flow along surface with fields

05 May 2008, 09:34 AM
Begginer question:

When I create a flow along surface for particles and ad fields to affect these particles the fields doesn't seem to affect the particles.

What could be the problem?
Does someone know of a good tutorial covering this?

I believe the answer would be goal weight.

When goaling particles in Maya dynamics (including curve flow and surface flow) you are given the option of controlling their goal weight. You can customize these quite a bit (goalPP, goalU, etc., etc.).

When using one of maya's effects (curve or surface flow), the attribute is readily available at the group level (try changing it to .5).
