View Full Version : Particle flow follows color

06 June 2008, 05:43 PM
Hello ,

I want to paint on a surface (plane) and I want particles to follow these painted strokes, so that I get a surface flow.
Then I want to instance nurbs planes on these particles with animated water textures to make waterflows like in LOTR.

How can I make the particles to follow these painted strokes?

You need to watch the Flow techniques DVD from Alias. They go over this exact example. It is a custom paint fx brush that was written for this purpose.

I think you can buy it from autodesk still but you may have to call them to order it. I saw it on this page

but I can't find where to actually buy it.

Hope this helps,
