Dynamic particles effect, how?


Hi, Does anybody know how to achieve this effect from 0:40 second of the video? I mean the person getting up from particle “mud”
If possible without using expressions or scripting?


doesn’t look like that much to it - collisions are standard with friction and sticky. they’re not changing shape or rotating and colour changes on collisions have several tuts online. There’s a bit of popping going on that’s not desirable - I’ve not done it but wouldn’t expect any great secrets.
