I'm working in the WaterBox.lws scene trying to get the hang of Particle Effects and I'm mystified by a qestion, and maybe someone could help.

When I load their scene, I see that their particles are controlled by a motion file. When I clear the motion file so I can tweak with the settings, the particles don't behave correctly anymore (or at least I think they don't). When the motion file is loaded, they interact with eachoter and they have buyancy, fill the box, and swish around. But when I remove the motion file, they just fall limp to the bottom of the box and swish around.

how do I get the particles to interact with eachother and/or regain their bouyancy? I've tried the different self-interaction modes, but with no luck.

Any help would be HUGELY appreciated.

thanks,

-Steve

You have to press FXstart for the calculation of interacting particles.
See also manual.
