General

This field enables involving of Maya particles and other dynamic objects in the fluid's motion. It requires the simulation to be performed with Velocity output channel switched on. Note that you don't need this field for particles created by the simulator itself.

Simulator Node simNode - The name of the PhoenixFD simulator node as a string.


Influence influence - Determines how strong the fluid holds the particle. 100% means that the particle will follow the fluid exactly. Influence less than 100% causes an approaching of the particle's speed to the fluid's speed. Influence of 10% means that at every integration step the velocity of the particle will overcome 10% of the difference between its velocity and fluid's velocity.


Ignore play speed ignoreTimeScale - If checked, the Play speed attribute of the node and the frame duration during the simulation are not taken into consideration.
