View Full Version : Wind controller- mode documentation

I'm interested in figuring out how PATH WIND works. Unfortunately, the dox skip over that mode (and some others) entirely.

So, how do you use PATH MODE? Is it geometry based?? :confused:

You keyframe the wind object along the path you want the particles to take, and they will blow along that path...

how does one control the speed of the particles along the path? My particles are moving at a nice leisurely speed instead of the breakneck speed I desire!

You can check the graph editor and look at the Speed and Velocity curves.

The speed of the particles is based on how the Wind (Path) object is keyframed.
If you key the Wind object to move 1m in 60 frames, the particles will move at one speed. But if you key the Wind object to move 1m in 10 frames, the particles will move much faster.
