Animating with thinking particles


I am using matterwaves and have an object that is animated. The particles grow from the object like I want and then freeze (so they stay/stick to the object for the duration of the animation) however, when the animation starts and the object moves, the particles dont move with it. Any ideas for how to make this happen?

you could use a PPositionFollow or a PMotionInheritance node.
There are holes in the sky. Where the rain gets in.
But they're ever so small. That's why the rain is thin.

Thanks for responding. I have looked into this but Im a beginner to tp and xpresso and am unsure as to how to set it up. Is this something you know how to do?

Take a look at the presets. The TP Sticky Goo emitter will attach particles to a shape and keep them stuck if the shape moves.
