problems let emitter follow path with crowdflow

Postby majinpu » Sun Apr 22, 2012 11:44 pm

hello!!

new in this amazing world!!
I'm trying to make an emitter follow a path using crowdflow, i had to fill some objects along it's way.
I've done the path with an object in C4D and imported in RF but it was not working.
So i set the postion curves to a null object that i created in RF still nothin'.
the null object moves and it works because changing the parameters, only once seems that the particle were following the path but then RF crashed, and,,, all parameters lost... damn"!
I saw the tutorial for crowdflow and read a lot (i think all) the post about this plug in, but i can't get it to work
I post two screenshots of my base scene, one with the null path, the other one with crowdflow settings.

sorry for my poor english!
thanks!

Hi

A few things comes to mind:

Path Follower Strength must be larger than zero otherwise no path follow force is applied.

Escape radius should be larger than connect radius, otherwise you might see particles connecting and then right way escaping again.
