Lets say I have a some particles flying out into space from an emitter, can I get access to their coordinates?

I know the coordinates of the emitter, but the particles themselves, surely they are stored somewhere.

I would like to eventually have a constraint pointing at a particle. A bone stretching to a particle as it moves would be nice, or a damped track, or a copy location constraint.

  • $\begingroup$ Would be better if I could get it through buttons, but if thats what it takes, im willing to use drivers. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Do you know their location in python? DNA address its called, I think. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ What exactly are you trying to do? I don't think using drivers with particles or viewing them in the UI is a good idea. $\endgroup$
