Create Strands from Curves dynamics

Post by Werner » 14 Sep 2011, 11:41

Hi Guys,

I'm creating strands using the "Create Strands from Curves" compound. All works well, except when I use the Strand Dynamics Framework compound on it. The strands pop to points on the origin. Any idea?

Normal "Emit Strands" works and behaves really weel for the specific job, but I need one strand on each curve that I'm creating...with dynamics on them.

Any ideas?

Hi Werner,

The compound was missing the curve length and didn’t include simulations attributes by default. Here is an updated one working fine with the Strand Dynamics Framework : ... w=01f928ee

You won’t need to add the compounds Init Strand Dynamics, Constain Strand Length etc… at the particle creation, as those compounds are also include in this Create Strands from Curves 1.1
