Asteroid crashing into planet surface using Particle Flow - Please Help!
show user profile  jous8
Hi, I am trying to create a scene where an asteroid is crashing into a planet, I have found a tutorial online for this but I do not have the start-up max file that is used for the tutorial called asteroid_impact_start.max.for 3ds Max 8 (if anyone has that file, it would also be very useful for me!)
Anyway, I got as far as creating Gravity, Drag and Deflector and then a spherical PF Source around the planet and in the Particle View assigning the asteroid as the shape, and also assigning Gravity as the Force Space Warp but in my animation of this, the asteroid flies AWAY from the planet instead of crashing into the planet. Please help!

You are more than welcome. I have checked that the file loads, and it seems ok for me. Good luck.
