I am attempting to get particles from boots walking through snow to land and stay on the surface. They fly off beautifully from selected verticies. However, Gravity pulls them far below. A Deflector really does not do the job either. Does anyone have any other ideas? I am working with 64 footsteps.

I'd say particles plus a deflector are the way to go. Only thing is you'll need 64 systems or maybe a clever PFlow setup. Why do you say the deflector isn't doing it for you?

A quick attempt here: http://www.spriteley.go-plus.net/snowfall.zip

I do have the 64 systems. Where did you place the Deflector in the animation you created? That is exactly the effect I am looking for.
