For the next couple of shows, we’re going to dig into Thinking Particles.

This show will be an overview of the basics, not just looking at the presets but actually the essentials of how Thinking Particles systems are designed within Xpresso.

Subsequent show(s) will look at recreating some specific effects, including MoGraph integration and spawning particles based on dynamics interactions.

When I click on the little blue square after I add time, I then click on the circle and it disappears. How do I rename time? Do I control click with the mouse or is it something different? I’m doing this in R12 by the way.

I tried adding pyro clusters and it sort of worked, but there are problems. Can somebody look at this and see if you can tell me what is wrong?
