3Ds max PFlow emit from both mesh surface and volume


I need to get particles born from both the surface and volume of a mesh in the same PFlow event. basicaly i have 2 events both with a birth and a position object operator. I need the particles from both these events to get send to the next event, i tried using 2 send out operators but it doesnt seem to work.

how do i correctly set this up? thanks.

Sorry I totally do not understand what you are trying to do, maybe I am over thinking it.

You want particles that are in the surface of a mesh(A) AND particles inside the volume of mesh(A) in the same event?

Particles inside the volume that are close to the mesh surface are essentially on the surface of the mesh.

Have you got a reference image or even a sketch of what you are looking to do?

Ya I also can't understand what you are trying to do. What is the end goal you are trying to achieve? Why do you want to span particles inside the mesh if they are spawning on the surface?
