Particles hitting invisible object.

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi all. So I have two objects. One object acts as a tube for particles to flow through, and another object that acts as a valve that constricts movement of those particles. Think of the valve like your thumb being put over a hose. The problem is that the particles cling to an object I cannot see, and I'm not sure why this is.

 

Here is a picture showing this:

Here is a short video showing this in more detail. 

 

Attached is a file that shows this. X-Particles version 732. 

 

Thanks guys & gals for any help you might be able to offer!!! Have a nice weekend.

Fortunately an individual on the X-Particles Discord helped me. Turns out there is this radius doodad under the emission tab on the emitter:

So even though the default view of particles are dots, those dots each had a radius that was invisible. Changing the display to circles from dots made this radius much easier to understand. 

 

That fixed that problem. Onto the next one. Man it's difficult to get questions answered on this plugin, wondering if I made the right choice when getting it.
