Thinking particles

Messaggio da rayburnside » ven lug 08, 2016 4:59 pm

Hi

Wonder if anyone can help?

I'm trying to create some Xpresso routine to create an emitter which can change the object emitted at specific frames.

Been banging my head against this all day. Anyone done this?

Any advice would be hugely appreciated.

Thanks that helps. But I was hoping to be able to insert a node in between the p pass node and the shape node which would act as what would be a 'case' statement in many languages such as

Case (frame 10): shape (square);
Case (frame 20): shape (circle);

If that makes sense.

Can'y see any way of using "condition" or "switch" to do that?

Yes you can
just pay attention to data type of xpresso node

watch the example, of course you can change the condition algorithm

Thank you cappellaiomatto. That's exactly what I needed and couldn't quite get to.
Much appreciated.
