need help here please

hi every one
i'm working with "pflow", "toolbox" and "krakatoa"
i see in krakatoa some empty channels when try to save particles and i'm asking if i can export calculated channel inside "boxtool" (data operator) to be saved with krakatoa channel in ".prt" files, is that possible to do because i spend lot of time searching in the internet and didn't get any solution for this!!!

Currently you cannot save custom channels from Data operators directly.

Your only option is to output the data from the Data Operator into one of the supported channels.

For example Krakatoa supports MXSInteger, MXSFloat and MXSVector which represent the Script channels that are also visible in the Standard Output sub-operator as "Script:" Float, Integer and Vector. So if the data does not fit in one of the pre-defined Standard channels, use the Script ones.

Krakatoa also supports all 99 Mapping channels (Check ">All Mapping Channels" in the Save Particles rollout to see them), and in the Output Standard select "Mapping" and dial in the corresponding "Channel #" spinner.
That should be plenty of room to output Vectors or even Floats and Integers which you can store in the Vector's components.
