DY_emitter vs standard emiter

Postby korky » Tue Oct 18, 2016 12:07 am

Sorry, i'm noobie

Just second day of learning scripting in Python RF.
I want to create something like k Volume Daemon, but i want it only in one direction and i don't want it with sharp boarder.
I want particles to remove randomly in time.
So i have wrote this:

Code: Select all

import random

def onSimulationFrame():

   emiter = scene.get_DY_Emitter("DY_Emitter01")
   czasteczka = emiter.getFirstParticle()
   while (czasteczka):
      pozycja   = czasteczka.getPosition()
      position_x = pozycja.getX()
      los = random.uniform (0, 10)

      if ((position_x > 1) and (los < 1)):

      czasteczka = czasteczka.getNextParticle()


When i use standard particles, everything runs ok, but when i use DY_Emitter i got an error with "getFirstParticle()"
What's the problem ? Does DY_Emitter have particles ID ?

And the second problem... To write this little script i needed to explore allot of forums sites to find and understand the commands that i need.
It would be alot easier, if there would be just compedium of all commands with nice search engine.
Cant find anything by this help on site :http://support.nextlimit.com/display/rf2015docs/RealFlow+2015+Documentation
I was trying to use program help- Help/Realflow help... i'm find commands by index search, but when i'm try to read obuut it i got only blank page with "Loading..." . Why my help is not loading ?

sorry, I am not familiar with scripting, nevertheless.... Try to get the help function working in your installation of RF2015, it is a good resource. Maybe you have to use the "reload" command (right-mouseclick) if it does not appear.

Thank you ChristianZ.
Reload helped work for me, now i see the content ... which i allready know, cause i allready have read help files in installation directory. Unfortunately it doesn't contain information about how to exacly use command + some excample would be nice.
Mayby there is not much about DY solver, cause it's new...

Thanks for reply anyway. I you're the most helpfull person here :)

I'm also a beginner of learning RF scripts, I've met same problem when I use 'getFirstParticle()' for Dyverso, it seems the command 'getFirstParticle()' is only for standard particles,
