Advanced particle manipulation


In this video for 3ds max, we’ll start to talk about some more complex stuff related to particles management in Particle Flow. We’ll take a look at some basic concept about the Box #3 from Orbaz, now part of 3ds max 2014 and called Advanced data manipulation. It will be useful to manipulate particles in a really deep way accessing to a lot of powerful tools.

What we’ll do

In Advanced particle manipulation video we’ll start talking about the Box #3/Advanced data manipulation, and to understand how it works we’ll see some basic nodes able to catch information from scene objects, texture colors, and using it to manipulate particle position, scaling, rotation and animation. We’ll talk about basic knownledge to understand the Data operator workflow and we’ll see how to use mathematical functions and noises too.

      If I may?…What does that have to do with this tutorial? questions about “wrong” files and such should be turned in on a trouble ticket under the “HELP DESK” icon at the top of each page. I have already reported the one concerning THIS tutorial’s “HD Video” download, pointing to a dfferent video tutorial, and the folks here are looking into that.Maybe we all could direct such “errors” towards the staff with a ticket and not in the comment forums provided for the tutorials.

      the tutorial you have in question is named “Exclusive Explosion and Debris” .. and you are correct..there are no downloadable files…if you desire I can email the .zip file to you..It contains the .mp4 video and 3 .max files for for max2012 and a third with no max version stated..I beleive it is for max2013. I can split the .zip for you and send the .mp4 and the version file you need.
      my email is…let me know and I will be very glad to help you till cgcookie solves this error

    Mr Cangelosi: anothe fine tutorial from you. I use 3ds max 2014 and it has all the PFlow menus necessaary to do this tutorial. It was easy to follow and I completed it in about 45 mins. i had exactly the same results you got and it was plain fun! I can see that this method can be applied to many special effects and plan on using it in my next project incorporating Realflow 2013. Thanks for your efforts and expertise.

      Hi, thanks for your words. You are right, it was just an introduction to Data operator, but this workflow can be used in a lot of fx related projects :) we’ll release more videos about Data operator soon.
