FUmeFX question - simple
show user profile  tomphillipsarchi
Evening all,

I am new to fumeFX and krakatoa but that is not the issue,

Can i simply copy a fumefx setup (duplicate it in the same scene)?

I wish to have three identical particle systems working and it seems having to do the same thing three times is a bit of a mission.

Any advice would be great :)

shift transform is really good at this, or you can right click in the viewport and choose clone... clone is also in the edit menu.

Hey Digs,

Does this mean however, the forces in the first instance affect the second?

you can just select everything associated with 1 grid, duplicate them, and have an identical second grid that has forces you can change for variation, or, you can select everything except the forces, duplicate them, and have the original forces effect the new grid

duplicating 1 grid will effectively create a copy of the grid.
