Particle collision

Right now, I have an obstacle, but all it does is deflect the particles (the particles continue to live happily and scatter away from the obstacle). Is that deflection I have to use?

:smiley: If yes, what are the settings you have to put to STOP the particles ? (the particles die upon colliding with obstacle)

I’ve never really studied the blender particle system, but I know for a fact there’s a ‘kill particles on collision’ setting in Jahka’s particle patch.

Of course there’s also comb and cut for hair and practically everything else. I’d look into it if I were you.

The particles have a maximum life spam setting in terms of frames, you could try and use that. I don’t really know much about this.

It sure looks like it would be in particle tab 3, “Die on hit” button.

But I’m looking at this for the second time ever tonight.

:smiley: Tab 3 ? I have only 2 tabs… /Particles/Particle Motion\

:smiley: If you are using, the Jahka patch, I think I’m gonna get it too…

You need a version with Jahka’s particle patch. www.graphicall.org
