Magnetic Fields Animation help needed!!
show user profile  Westcoast13
Maybe I should have carried on my old thread but my question has changed a bit and the thread was old so we'll start a fresh....

I need to show a tube of oil with tiny magnetic particles flowing up and down it. There is an electromagnet which gradually turns on and the particles are attracted to 2 points on the flux lines. As the current increases, more particles are attracted so the flow of oil slows down.

Is ANYONE still following this??

Any suggestions of how to show the build up of particles/slowing down of flow would be greatly appreciated.

Not sure if I understand your brief correctly, but it sounds like you might benefit from watching a video tutorial on in which he creates lightning using pflow. That tutorial shows some useful control of particles in multiple directions.

I dont get it much... you want to slow down the particles speed or want them to go an specific direction...
