View Full Version : problems parenting emitter to hardfx object

09-16-2008, 02:56 AM

i have an object which shall be followed by a particle emitter. if i take the emitter, parent it to the object, keyframe animate the object, the emitter follows the object. thats what i would expect.

but if i let the object be animated by hardfx, thats what i need, the particle emitter is not following the object.

i tried the motion modifier 'follower' too, same effect.

how can i fix this?

thanx in advance

You can make the hardfx object a particle emitter. When you apply dynamics to the object via hardfx the object itself isnt moving, the vertices are. You can use the editfx tool to extract a motion path from the object.
