I am trying to create a lava lamp effect with three separate layers in motion. Anyone have any thoughts?

The hard part is that the lava splits apart and congeals randomly.

You'll need to employ a combo of randomizing/oscillating shape size and distortion, orbiting or random gravity (around an invisible object), etc... the Afterburner and Gravity Motor emitters have similar properties - might help to study them. The Cellular generator does the whole split/congeal thing, but it's tough to control it the way you might want to...

Sounds like a cool project. Share your approach, and let us know if you pull it off.
