Pflow - hemisphere should meet another hemisphere

Hi folks,
i don´t know how i could get the following problem solved. if got two different Pflow´s sending out two different instanced hemisphere objects. now while they are traveling along a path (speed by icon) beneth a object they should meet after a time one another on there flat side so that i get a sphere. the solution is not to kill the hemispheres as the audiance should see how they meet each other (it is a scientific visualisation). i hope that anybody of you gurus can help me as pflow newby :-).

thanks in advance for your fast reply !

This sounds like something you'd be better off doing with objects and path constraints instead of particles.

i thought about animating with objects and pathconstrains but it is pretty difficult to animate about 2000 objects in this way. so the question ist - is there any way to achieve it with particles ?

Definitely possible with Box#3 extension. It has a suboperator to find a closest particle-to-particle pair from two different particle systems. Once a couple of particles is connected, it can be excluded from the particle-to-particle search, so the other particles won't take to coupled pair into their own coupling consideration.

If you want, I can design a solution for you (as a custom Data operator in Box#3) via Orbaz Services - - please let me know.
