Create a heart monitor? (beep... beep.... beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep....

Hi all,

I want to create a heart monitor. You know the green line that goes from left to right and spikes when it beeps? Anyway I created the curve and added a circle with a particle system with no gravity and no velocity, then added a follow path constraint and it works fine with the one problem, the particles don’t stay a solid line when it hits the spike. You can see individual “clumps” of particles.

Anyone have a bettter way to create a heart monitor?


Do it with texture. Have heart beat display texture where with animated alpha that sweeps over. The curve appears as it gets revealed. It looks quite convincing.

Great idea! Thanks ridix!
