    Down the drain

    I'm trying to create the effect of a whirlpool as water is sucked down a plughole. I've added a particle emitter and swirling wind so the motion looks good, but I can't seem to properly parent another emitter to the first one to create "streams" of water.

    This is my first experiment with particles, so if anyone could shed any light it would me most appreciated.

    Cheers

    I don't quite understand the question. Parent one emitter to another? Couldn't you just...parent?

    I have parented the emitters, but the effect is not what it should be - or should I say what I want it to be.

    I would like the particle acting as an emitter to release a constant flow of secondary particles ie to have a tail.

    But my child particles just don't want to flow nicely behind their parents.

    If you want them to have the same motion, then you can save the motion and load it up with the second. Also turn off collisions for the particles so that they dont bang into each other.
    I know where I'm going and I know the truth and I don't have to be what you want me to be
    I'm free to be what I want
