Sending Particles from an Event to a different Source


how do I pass just the particles in EventN from PF_Source01 to Source_02?

Any hints appreciated.

You can only really grab data from another source. The easiest "live" way is with box#3 and the input proxy subop, you simply grab the data you want from the chosen source and reuse it in your second flow. ie position, rotation, scale, whichever.

You can also of course save out your source A particles to PRT and load them back into source B with the Krakatoa PRT operators too.

No real direct way to swap between sources in the way you may be thinking.
