I have a little issue here. We want to simulate the way people come into the building and use the 4 different 'towers' to spread across the floors. So my idea was to use Particle flow and let that move some cylinders into the building, up the towers and then to be distributed rather evenly on the floors.
Right now, the particles follow the path (more or less) and go up. for one of the 4 events i also added a deflector (being one of the floors) that then triggers a speed by surface.
However, if i had to do that for every event, and every floor (7 are displayed, 13 are there in total) i'd rather add some overlay in post than use particles.
Now is there a way to create this without having to add >30 deflectors?
And how do i distribute the particles rather evenly on the floor?
is there a way to have one birth ditributing particles over every floor (after they went through one)?
Or would i also have to create > 30 births?
And are the particles being so ridicoulusly slow and fast at the beginning? (I tried with different birth seeds - still that weird behaviour)
