"Flocking" behavior with Trapcode Form 2.0?
on Nov 11, 2011 at 2:32:05 am

Hi all,
I'm curious if any of you might have any ideas of how I might be able to pull off motion similar to this: in Trapcode Form 2.0.
It seems like it should be possible, but I'm just not getting the results I'm hoping for.
Thanks in advance,
Brittnell

Hi,

Your example looks like it was probably coded with something like Processing or Cinder, which would allow each particle's behaviour to be controlled by a flocking algorithm, but Particular doesn't have anything like intelligent particles. You might be able to fake something similar by playing with the sphere forces strength and location, as well as the twist parameter, but it's not going to behave the same way.

I found a couple of examples of what can be done with Particular:

Using a C4D custom sprite:

And a demo by Peder Norrby, with a downloadable project file:
