Electricity in a Particle System for Special Effects

  1. Sep 16, 2015 #1

    I work with Particle Systems for special effects (Houdini FX) and I would like to build a electric arc system.
    I can offset the positions of every particle by certain rules/conditions or expressions and maybe someone here,
    Knows a expression or a good link to something like this. Some math that I can use to change the particle positions in a way, that it looks like electricity

    Thank you!

    Thanks for the post! This is an automated courtesy bump. Sorry you aren't generating responses at the moment. Do you have any further information, come to any new conclusions or is it possible to reword the post?

    What? What particles? What do you mean by, "that it looks like electricity"? We're going to need you to be a lot more descriptive if you want help.
