Branching with Trapcode Particular
on Jan 25, 2018 at 10:13:45 pm

Hi, i need to create a particle system branching like a light tree. Do you know a tutorial that can guide me the right way? i've searched all day long, maybe im not usingĀ“the right words. please help im kind of desperate... here's an example: https://i2.wp.com/www.it20.info/misc/pictures/vCloud-the-Morphing-Channel-B...
Also i found this and is very close to what im looking, but i need the lines to split 3 or 4 times more




Thanks!

the branching is created by using the 'aux system' which can be set to allow the particles to emit particles.

however to get that those to branch again will be difficult, if not impossible....

the advanced lightning effect can create branch-like forms. set the glow settings to 0, enable decay main core and scrub the decay property yo see if that could pass as a growing tree branch. fiddle around with other settings like core radius, turbulence and forking to see if it might work....
