I am trying to create life cells dividing animation using Particle Flow in 3ds max 2016. I have mature cells particles which interact to each other using physics simulation (mParticles). At some point these particles have to spawn new small particles from the surface of the mature particles which start grow around parent particles and still use physics simulation with other particles. The problem is that I cannot change the collision shape size for the growing particles because of NVIDIA Physics limitations used for that purpose. Is there a way to make such animation using TP? Thank you!

Hi, after years of using pflow, i'm learning TP and struggling to do some things that seam straight forward to me.

Text object that i have VolumeBreak into chunks. Then i have a deflector passing through the text that sends the chunks to a wind force and blows out of frame. Now i want the whole thing to be made of particles (using frost later) not mesh, so i figured i would just birth particles on the mesh volume with a motion inherit and they would stick to the chunks blowing away until i tell them not to. How do i inherit motion from the chunks?

any help muchly appreciated.

Hi guys, i need help. i want to achieve the disintegration effect, like now i have only a model with texture materials when its fragmented into smaller pieces, like slowly destroyed from color material to ash material, its changing instantly, i want a transition like from color material to slowly changing to grey and then dark ash material.. i think its the simple one..

here is what i have done in tp.

Thinking Particles webinars on tree rigging and floating objects

Hey guys, I'll be doing 4 webinars on how to do tree simulations and objects floating on water surfaces using Thinking Particles.
I'll be covering many aspects of TP when building the setup, which is great for learning the software. Even if you're interested in other topics, it might just show a solution where you didn't expect it.

It's free to watch live, starting this Friday, May 5th

Motion inheritance from particles @joecoke69


the motion inheritance node does not allow you to track transformations from particles, only form scene objects.
If you want to inherit particles motion, have a look at pAttach.
If you want a soft falloff for inheritance depending on distance, use a pSearch, and blend between your particles and the pSearch average velocity based on distance to closest or average position.
