I'm creating an animation in 3DS Max for an awards ceremony (the Golden Joysticks Awards) and at one point in the animation, Earth comes into view and needs to show lines coming from various countries all ending up in London (signifying 'voting'). Please see the attached image for reference...
Now, I could set up a load of particle systems each with it's own spline, but this would prove very long winded, be very inflexible and generally a pain in the backside. So I was wondering if there was anything in Particle Flow that could help me, or if there is another way of going about doing this? I ideally need dozens of lines, the more the better. Any ideas/tips would be very much appreciated. I'm using Max 2009 64 bit and rendering using Mental Ray.
Thanks in advance, :)
