Bring To - Multiple shapes

hi , I'm trying to make an effect. So far I've been able to make the particles return to their original position, but what I want to do now, is that the purple particles change not to their original position but to the position and orientation of the green particles, how could I do that? This is what I get until now.

My recommendation is to make your cards just slightly different size from the start - make one deck, vary the height by some insignificant amount, then copy it and make the other deck. Then in TP you can use a ppassAB to set reference when the difference in sizes is below some very low threshold. It can be done with wirecolor too, but you'll need a custom scripted operator.

I`m trying to filter the set reference by size using the ppassAB, but I can`t realize how to do that, I know that there is Particle size outputs in the ppassAb, but how can I compare both values?

Thanks in advice.

You can subtract the sizes of particle a and b and send this to a threshold - if it's very very low, you have a match

Hi Hristo, I try that and is ok, I can get the boolean value to activate the set reference node, but I dont know what is bad with my setup, so I will put here my 3ds max File, so maybe you can take a look at it when you have some time. This is a personal learning project.

Sorry for my english.

There you go. You don't need the passing group or the memory node, and you should set the reference only on particle age born. I hope max14/tp5 is ok
