Make particles follow a path and be able to change velocity,
on Nov 21, 2010 at 7:43:44 pm

Hey there,
Would really appretiate if someone could give me a hand on how to:

make hundreds of particles move along a designated path; and have their speed affected by the soundkeys plugin; so that for instance when the music becomes louder, the speed of the particles increase, but they continue to follow their designated path.

Thanks

What plugin are you using for particle creation?
If you're using Foam, you can use a precomp as a flow map to control the path of the particles and precomp your particles (with the flow map) and apply time remapping to the precomp. You'll have to work out some expression to make Sound Keys effect it the way you want.

If you're using Particular Roland's given you a good link.
I was thinking about it too. Your Particular documentation tells you how to get your particles to follow a path and you could tie the Sound Keys keyframes to the Physics Time Factor with an expression. Again, you'd have modify it to get it to behave how you want.
