Hi im trying to get a dynamic electricity effect going on:
Basically, I want an object to pass over a particle emitter, and have lines show up connecting itself to all the moving particle instances on the emitter plane.
No idea how to do this.. seems i'd need to recreate each particle and animate it, then add "connection" curve/meshes for each particle, and then clamp them on both the passing object and each particle. THis seems super tedious if I want 50+ particles.
Any idea how to approach this? I have a hunch 'animation nodes' might help"? Thanks.
