TP help - Xpresso node = rotation

Howdy,
can someone point me at the right xpresso node or operator that's the equivalent of the basic particle tool for rotation?
I just want to create a downward stream of particles being sucked into a vortex, like water going down a bath drain.
Thanks

I dont know if there is one, but I mean what you want sounds like it could be accomplished using a pGravity node and a pMotionInheritance Node and just have a null spinning like you want the particles to do.

Thumbs up

yea, good suggestion, I'd just decided it was time to RTFM for a change and found the PmotionInheritence node. Thanks.

Isn't there also a Vortex preset in the Objectlibrary?

Well, I'm in 9.1 and I can't see one...

A Vortex should be easy to creat from the TP Rotator, TP Tube Wind and Nozzle or Suction.

Hi Srek,
they all sound wonderful, but I don't have any of those in my install of TP... Man, I thought TP was missing some obvious stuff.
Are they part of the standard install for 9.1?

Ooooo, DejaVu, we've had this conversation before :-)
These are only available for 9.5 and above as a collated library - bummer.
Is there anyway to uncollate a libary as separate objects so us poor smucks with 9.1 can use these new-ish TP objects?
