Hey y'all,

I have a project we're creating for a magician.

I like the idea of using the Particle FX and emitters and such for generating a deck of blowing playing cards.

BUT...

That's 52 different surfaces I'll need on the cards.

Will the FX Linker accept more than one object? (Not that's a good idea).

Does there exist a multiple surface / same object kind of trick.

Anyone have a managable solution?:hey:

Thanks, my friends.

Ty

FX_Dynamic Linker will accept multiple objects to be applied to a particle emitter.

And if you have 52 images for the cards, I have a plugin which will turn them into 52 planes with a surface each. Then you can just stencil the card shape onto them.
