Chapter 18. PFlow > PFlow—The Powerful New Particle System

PFlow—The Powerful New Particle System

3ds max 6 includes the new Particle Flow system that you can use to liven up the engine room of your boat with smoke escaping from a cylinder head and thick oil oozing from the can as it strikes the grate after falling.

With Particle Flow, you are able to visually manipulate events in a special dialog box called Particle View by dragging and dropping operators and wiring them into a complex system describing the behavior of the particles in the scene. Events are groups of operators that define the behavior of the particles.
