I love Blender…
You didn’t know that, did you?
You did, oh then you’ll know I like it’s particle system too.
I do find it interesting that it’s a modifier, though. It should have a tab all to itself… Well, actually it does.
The fact that you can apply it as a modifier could be a throwback to an earlier less comprehensive version of the system, because it’s HUGE in terms of content. This video is the first in a short series of films about how to understand and make all sorts of wonderful things with the particle system, covering the basics of getting an emitter to emit directionally, making it emit objects and controlling it with a simple turbulence field.
Stream of objects, here we come! Hope you like it.
You want to see something not here? Then let me know in the comments. I’m always keen to help out where I can.
Take care and stay safe.
