How to emit particle from an object with its all behavior?
show user profile  Echolink
Hi everyone,
I'm a beginner in 3DS Max
and here is the problem i encounter while implementing particle system

so i try to make a bulging pipe animation

successfully make the pipe bulging when the sphere move inside it

and i want to spawn the sphere multiple times (from top to bottom) as long as the animation duration, so i try to used particle system

but when i try to emit the sphere ("Particle Geometry Object" using my sphere current as reference), the pipe didn't bulge.

any idea how to achieved what I'm trying to do?

You can try using space warps. Go to "Geometric Deformable" option in the rollout and choose "FFD." Grab the middle loop of the FFD and scale it. Now align and link it to your sphere. Finally bind your pipe to the space warp.

Hi herfst1,

sorry if i didn't explain it properly,
i have already successfully make the pipe bulge like the one in the picture

my problem is,
i want to spawn multiple sphere let say ever 0.5 second (from top moving to bottom)
and i want the sphere to continue effecting the pipe as it pass through it.

and i still have no idea how to do that

An out of range controller will let you loop the animation over and over.
