I've seen the flocking tool work with a cluster of particles following the director. As you can see from this screengrab, the particles don't cluster together, and none of the settings that I've played with seem to change that. I'm wondering if there's a problem with my install of LWave. Could someone tell me what setting would change this? If any? thanks138102

Post the scene.

Or at least post a screen shot of your Flocking=>Agent and Agent Variations settings. The default settings in LW 2015.3 track the director precisely.

Jeric, Thanks for offering, but I figured it out. I was "abusing" the start and end frame option, which was stalling the particles as they followed the director. Its a computer, so it does what you tell it to! Duh!! Sometimes I wonder how I got this far. Thanks again for being to generous.

Don't you hate that? ;)
