I want to kill particles when they collide with an object.

More specifically, I have a chunk of meat that is getting cut with a tubular cutter, like you would find in a surgical procedure.

I have particles with hypervoxels applied. When the cutter touches a particle, I need that particle to die.

Clip mapping won't work, I need more control.

Any ideas? I did a pretty thorough search and found a dozen ways to control the birth but not the death.

Thanks,

Patrick

Have you tried attaching a collision effector set to Erase?

Yup, that was what I was looking for. One of those things locked away in the cobwebs from version 5.6

Thanks Nick, you Rock!
