Remove isolate particles ,After Simulation

Postby saka » Sat Mar 01, 2014 7:37 am

I want remove particles.
their is out of the bottle and isolate...
Isolate deamon can remove isolate particles,
I use Isolate deamon,setting 0.001,the value is tbased on ime value.
It's means to remove all of particles Isolate,0.001 is very very short time.
But I can not remove them.

simulation is very good,want to remove the particles After Simulation by area.
Isolate deamon or speed deamon only? their are not convenient for detail.

I've had the same problem.

1. Use the particle selection tool to select particles you want to get rid of.
2. The same tool will let you delete them.
3. You will have to do this manually for ever frame that has offending particles you want to get rid of.

Now, you need to save the changed to the cached BIN file, which is not as straight forward as it should be. To save your changes...

Go into your script editor and create a script command. Add this...

emitter name.export()

eg. Circle01.export() This will save the changes made to the Circle01 emitter.

I created a button on the tool bar so that I can click this script with a mouse click when ever I need to.

So, select your particles, delete them, save the changes, go to the next frame.

Good luck,

There is a script that can do this. ... simulated/

However, I advise you to save a backup of your scene because when I ran this in the past the scene would sometimes crash and become corrupted.
