Particular, Particles staying within a shape

Hey guys,

So I've been toiling with this all day. I'm either missing something very elementary, or not searching with the right parameters on Google.

I have a set of particles that need to bounce around inside a contain. Example: If I were to drop a bunch of marbles in a tray shaped like a heart. It's less about the depth, and more about the X and Y. Basically, having the particles bounce around within the set walls, the walls being the shape of the heart.

I noticed that Particular allows you a wall and a floor. Is there any way to create a wall from a shape?

Thanks!

Sorry, but I dont think Particular is capable of this behavior. You can setup 3d layers to interact with the particles, but it is limited to flat planes with cutouts. I am not aware of any ability of Particular to react to shapes, masks or splines.

Yeah, I was afraid of that. It seemed to be the case. Oh well. Thanks for the response!
