Particle path follow
Yet another noob animation problem!
The picture explains it best i think; I need the oil (the yellow bit) to flow up and down the tube. I intend to use some small particles (bubbles i guess) to show the flow.
All help much appreciated!! :)

no wai... just made you a video and when tried to upload "Jing has stopped working "
introduction to my method:
start with a preset flow then a collision test that continues instead of bounce which leads to a find target to a cylinder which leads to a speed by surface parallel to surface of a rendereable spline and at last another collision test which sets a new speed

if you want to use something similar as path follow spacewarp for normal particles, you can use the speed by Icon node.
I'd make you a quick setup but rendering atm...
How it works: make the path to follow, and a node, use a path follow constraint on the dummy.
Go to pflow, add a speed by icon node, there should be an icon added to your scene, align & link that to the dummy. Adapt the speed by icon settings and your particles should follow the path.
