Xpresso TP problems with a simple (?) solution?
on Feb 22, 2018 at 9:44:37 am

Hi!

I'm trying to import a particle animation and apply the 'pscale' attribute that is in the simulation to set the size of my objects. I've never really used Xpresso before and I am having issues making it work all together. I'm guessing I've just missed something basic.

Here is a screenshot of what the setup looks like:

I've used a PStorm emitter (I'm not sure I need this since my imported particles are already being emitted?). I have attached the imported particle group to 'Particle Geometry' but it is not emitting the geometry (Cube) nor applying pscale.

Any ideas? I have attached the scene if you want to see it for yourself.

Many thank yous!

yes simple. You use a PPass not a PStorm and you don't need a Particle Geometry - then the PPass feeds the Shape the GetData and a Setdata like this...
