View Full Version : Reassembling an object. Particle Question

06-10-2003, 03:31 AM
IŽd like to disassemble a textured object into dust and reassemble it back in another position. Like a Teletransportation thing . The oposite of the freebie Gnomon FX tutorial.
I tried to duplicate my NURBS object and use it as a goal, nut the particles goes to CVs instead of rebuild my original geometry.

Why don't make the opposite action?
Then turn your rendered animation in the right sense!

Reply me !

you will need an "intermediate" particle object to use as a goal for the moving particles i guess..

to get the right effect you can also "sort" your particles quite eaily with a small trick.

if you like, check out the following files (both .mb files):

sort them first (http://bigott.gmxhome.de/scenes/SortParticles.mb )
(run from frame 1 to see the effect of sorting)

now the goaled movement (http://bigott.gmxhome.de/scenes/SortParticlesGoal.mb )
