Hello,

Anyone can explain me what can be the use of VORTICITY in Realflow ?

Thank you very much,
Stephane.

I haven't found a use for it yet, but I suppose it could be used for shading the particles in another application. Or if you want to make something funky it could be used in a daemon as a trigger for an event.

Unless you have a specific need for that information its best to leave vorticity disabled on the emitter because it takes a while to calculate that information.

I think it can help to have more reel simulation in gazes...not sure...

And in rendering maybe : http://vimeo.com/8400492

Thank you Luke.

or to drive another particle system? I suppose the best thing to do is to be able to visualise the data somehow and go from there.
