Tip: Krakatoa Collision PFlow operator

In this tip tutorial for 3ds max we’ll continue to talk about Particle Flow, and we see something related with surface interaction and collisions. In the past we used a lot deflectors and collision operators to have collisions between PFlow particles and objects but it is really slow, so we’ll take a look at the Krakatoa Collision Operator to see how we can use it to speed up our particle setup.

      Hi Marc,
      thanks for posting. Absolutely not. You can just use the Krakatoa Collision operator in a scene that will be rendered as you need with any rendering engine, we are using just the PFlow operators coming from Thinkbox Software to have a faster collision detection 😉
