This answer is based on Omar Emara's Answer , so be sure to read it before you move on as I won't explain everything that have been answered there. This is the loop to generate polygon However, this loop doesn't take the distances between vertex points into account so I modify the loop to use the Distances output from Find Nearest Points node. As per ...

You can do this easily using Falloff Tracer node. Falloff Tracer is available on Animation Nodes + Extra Nodes addon.

The armature modifier needs to be higher on the modifier stack than the particle system. Like this: Not this: You can use the arrows next to the X to move the modifiers around.

Particle Instance Modifier might be your friend. I used it once to make water droplets fall down wet hair. It's hard to see because the droplets are a little too transparent and the GIF is really bad quality, but they're there! (see original complete HD video: https://youtu.be/1kSnauxiZqY). You tell your particles that they should sprout in the hair system ...

Here is another option that i used once: Create a particle system and make the particles move in any way you want, use forces for that. inside the particle system go to Render > Render As > Path Then go to Cache > Bake Now you need to go to Modifier > Particle System > Convert Once you do that you will have a new Mesh, so you need to ...

One approach would be to model each hair as a separate curve (you could probably have a decent result with most of the curves being duplicates), adding a cylinder with curve deform modifier, setting the object origin to one end and then animating the scale of the object (along one axis). Similar approach would be to add an array modifier and animating the ...

You can do UV unwrapping and hair particles independently of each other. UV unwrapping creates UV maps. You can find them in the Object Data Properties. Hair particles create particle settings and adds a hair modifier to the object. As long as you haven't started to paint textures or edit/comb the hair you can delete uv maps and particle settings and re-...

Fake physics with keyed particles Keyed particles allows to drive in time the movement of the particles along several objects. The driver has itself a particle system in which settings we can define the sequence of other objects the particles will go through. The objects of this sequence have their own particle system (with eventually their own parameters). ...

You can create invisible letters and make your candies fall into. For the letters, in the Properties panel > Physics > Rigid Body > Collisions > Shape, choose Mesh: If you don't want candies to fall out of the letter, once they have fell into the letter, you can select them all at frame X, go in the header menu > Object > Rigid Body > ...

You could do it backwards. Have a mesh (set to not be visible in the render itself) define the shape for the particles to end up in, have this mesh start with a lot of particles only inside its volume, and then animate them all 'falling' randomly upwards under an appropriate force. Then reverse the animation, either externally or via baking it and ...

Start the animation with a huge number of particles and make them fall onto the plane. Bake them and transform the particles into real objects with keyframes. Select all the particles and remove from selection (You can use the C shortcut to activate the circle selection) those in the places you want to save (where the letters should be drawn) and delete the ...

Just had the same problem. I've joined 2 objects (one with a modifier) and separated the meshes again into two objects. This copied a Bevel modifier on the object. The modifier caused the particle origin problem. Either remove the modifier or tick the checkbox Use Modifier Stack in Emission → Source → Emit from. This solved the issue and the particles are ...

You can do it with particles: Create your meteor, give it a particle system, in the Field Weights switch off the Gravity, in the Velocity give a bit of Normal and Object Aligned X to give the particles a direction. Create a stretched sphere that will be your particle, in the particle system Render panel choose Render As > Object and under Object > ...

With current experimental build 2.91 you can base this on Volume Object. create the shape from a Mesh Object. add Volume Object and in modifiers choose Mesh to Volume, as source Object choose created shape one add Point Light object in trail direction (close to a sphere) With second modifier Volume Displace you can use texture to distort. Here is a few ...

You might want to add more control points to the hair particles. The goal is the add some extra control points near the scalp/head so hair can bend nicely there. To do so, make sure Selection Mode: Point is active to see the points. Select all roots by using the menu. Then select the next points via the menu (Select → Select More or hit Ctrl + NumPad +). ...

Just set the source of emission to „Volume“ instead of „Face/Verts“ in the particle settings: Result:


6

You absolutely can. Make particles come from verts, uncheck "random order" and input on the "number" the exact number of vertexes you object has. 8 in the case of a cube. Crazy shape? No problem! Just match verts and number of hairs. Wanna use a collection of objects? No problem! Just make sure the origins are all consistent.

Disable "show emitter" Will have effect in rendering only (not when viewport shading is set to rendered). Seems I've misunderstood the question. To hide the original particle object, put it in another collection and disable this collection for rendering. Note that if the PS instances are based on a collection, move this collection in another one ...

Or you can use your head object directly. select faces, go to Data Properties > add Vertex Group > Assign add Particle system and under Vertex Groups > Density > choose created Group (now particle will grouw from this red faces) to let them grow only on one side, move Particle modifier above Mirror modifier in stack

Disable the mirror modifier on the scalp:

If you want to make a wind only for a particle system and another wind for a second particle system, you need to put the particles and the Winds inside different Collections and then, go to each Particle System > Field Weights > Effector Collection In the collection box add the collection of each particle system to make it work.


1

In the particles settings, under Field Weights, there is an option which allows you to decide how much effect different forces have on the particle system. You can set wind to 0 for no influence, or 1 for a full effect.

See if this works for you, it seems to have fixed the issue in my machine. Change the Primitive to curve segments in Render Properties > Hair.

In the Render settings of the particles you can set Render as to Collection. Put the green grass and orange flowers into the selected Collection. Tick Use Count in Render section and add some count values to specify how much grass and flowers you want.

Make sure the armature is above the particle system in the modifier panel And go back to the frame where you begin caching Or bake the hair dynamics

The steps you made should hide the emitter from the final render but I'm guessing you mean whilst you're working in the viewport. In the Properties panel, with the emitter selected uncheck both viewport and render (as needed) under Instancing > Faces: Properties Panel > Object Properties > Instancing > Faces > (show instancer) viewport + ...

Here's a shader approach. I'm not going to illustrate the tree; it's (perhaps unnecessarily?) big, and most of it isn't interesting - it's just plumbing to recover things like cell-centers from a randomized cell-grid. This though, is the principle that's being followed: A 1D Voronoi texture gives us distances from randomly-distributed centers in the U ...

Not sure if I understood your problem, but you have WAY TOO MUCH "pin goal strength" in your Hair dynamics! With that much pin strength the hair will be glued to the position you gave it when you combed and weighted. Lower that value to something around 0.01 and you might start to see some effect from gravity. Pin goal strength defines how badly ...

Rigid Body According to your image you can use Rigid Body physics. Add sphere as Particle in Physics properties add Rigid Body > type Active > Collision Shape Sphere Add sphere as Emitter, enable Particles System > source Volume > Render as Object Go to modifier properties and press Convert Add sphere as Collider object, go to physics properties ...

Need to go these steps: Set Particle Properties > Render > Render As : Object Set object. Play with controls. I found the answer here.

Your question is quite interesting. As while messing with it, i found a way to remove particle collision, so first of all thnx. coming to your question, your self proposed answer should work by using an emmiter particle system and 2 cahrge force fields + a drag force field: But judging from your quistion you just want a sphere filled with spheres and ...

I kept running into this. In my case I had to: Apply all offsets to both the emitter as well as all objects in my particle group Set the origin to the geometry of all objects in my particle group as well as the emitter Took me a while to figure this out


1

As far as I'm aware, Rigid Body and Particles don't work together - this is the case for hair and also for particle collisions - the particle simulation mostly ignores the state of the rigid body (for collisions and hair, although it strangly does work for particle emission, just not hair). It's not likely to be fixed by the developers due to the current and ...

I have the exact same problem, I looked for a tangible solution for more than a day. The work around of raising a copy of the plane is a good hack solution, but it seems to me that there must be reliable built in solution that should work without a hack. I got things to work in one test and then can't get it to work in an other one. It's almost as if there's ...
