Hello, sorry to bother you with this question. I remember seeing a thread about the ST:Voyager flying though a HyperVoxel cloud/nebula, and the particles moving out of it's way and rejoining behind the model. I can't seem to find it now. Can someone point me in the right direction?
Thanks in advance.

Thanks Hunter, I printed it out this time. :-)



Ok I tried this effect out. Man I can't believe how easy the basic effect is. Now I just have to figure out how they changed the color of the Hypervoxels when they hit the ships shields. :-)

Welp time to put lightwave aside for now and read the manual instead of just skimming through it. lol
Thanks again Hunter. :-)

On one of them I had the color based on velocity using a gradient, and the other I had two emmitters. One was parented to the ship and basically blasting the ship's nose. The color was based on age. The other was the general nebula. It is quick to set-up but you could spend days tweeking it.:)
