Use an Image to create a Particle Cloud?
on Aug 19, 2008 at 4:38:11 am

Hi all,

PI is an amazing particle package. Deceptively deep and capable.
I am curious if it is possible to create a particle 'cloud' from a bitmap image? I can do it in Fusion with a pImage_Emitter, but Fusion has a tendency to choke on such endeavors. Basically, the idea would be to have an image of a cool space nebula, and turn it into a moving cloud, that I can render out and composite later.

Is this possible? And if it is how might I best give it a whirl.
Thanks all, hope I can contribute some learned knowledge soon.

best,
Brendan g.
