I was trying to emit particles outside of a box with a surface emitter. I used a null object with wind and explosionbut the particles just emitted around on the surface of the box. My education has stopped dead here, any help appreciated

Try giving the particles gravity on the x,z,or y axis. Depending on witch way you want the particles to go.

Thanks skywalker, that had an interesting affect. The more gravity I added The further the particles were emitted, but they all seemed to take off in one direction. I found that if I placed a value in explosion it seemed to act properly; i.e. according to the intro to hypervoxels and particles dvd I was trying to learn from..........thanks again .snakerope
