Hi guys !

Is there a way to emit LIGHTS as particles in Particular? I don't mean like an emitter, I mean emitting lights as particles, I'm making some experiments with Plexus, and need to produce light particles that I can control.

Thanks

Particular give me the option to use a NULL as particle, I can also use NULLS in Plexus to generate lines between them but seems that Plexus isn't seeing them.
Any help would be very appreciated.

How do you get Particular to emitt actual nulls?
..I can't see that option.
The only way I could think of solving that, would be with Cinema 4d, where you can use lights (and probably nulls) as particles without problems.

[Bosco Mattel] "Particular give me the option to use a NULL as particle, I can also use NULLS in Plexus to generate lines between them but seems that Plexus isn't seeing them. Any help would be very appreciated."

As Anders suggests, Particular cannot actually emit objects back into the scene for other effects to reference.

Particular only renders an image into its own layer. In this case, it's rendering nothing because it's using the null as the source for the particle.
