X Particles noob

Recommended Posts

Hey,

I am trying to do a animation with X Particles.

The look I am trying to achieve is Isobars on a weather map - I have this working with...

Emitter with a plane as the object and follow surface with some turbulence and an Xp Trail ( for visual purposes) see pics attached

I have an object - an arrow - which I would like to clone and follow the trails path seen in pic but for all the trails

any pointers here appreciated

    Set 'tangential' under Extended / Rotation on the arrow emitter ? Very new to XP myself, so just a guess...
