TP equivalent for XP follow surface ?

Recommended Posts

Hi Cafe

I watched the tutorial below the other day, and it solved a problem I have long pondered, which is that of having objects on a surface and yet still reacting to dynamics and forces whilst being constrained to said surface. However at 11mins they were using xparticles follow surface widget.

So is this follow surface option available in regular TP, I followed another tutorial which made it work on a sphere, but that was using a collider with particles held back from the centre and so didn't work on a more abstract object.

So my goal is to make a TP Xpresso rig where I can just drop any object into the required fields and have things on the surface but also dynamically moving upon the surface. Hope Im making sense.

Very much Xpresso beginner too.

I think in content browser there are TP scenes/examples as I looking now and there is a scene named "tp_move_on_surface".

Maybe kind of setup you need...

    Hi Bezo

    I did have a lot at that one, but I think it may be based on a deflector as when you look close they just seem to bounce along and eventually fall off the edge of the plain, so there is no actual constraint to surface it seems.
