Hi all,

I am trying to use geometry to control attributes on particles. Would anyone know how to do that? 


I have a flat bed of sand grains with their "static Kinetic" set very high. But I would like the collision geometry (a hand in this case) to diminish the "static Kinetic" attribute to a very low setting. Much like using the sop solver for fluids.

Off the top of my head try using POP streams. So when the collision with the hand happens the particles are moved into a new stream. Then use a POP wrangle to change the desired attributes. Peter Quint has a great tutorial that goes over how to use POP streams to change attributes.

Okay. So I have the stream going.

1. I have made a collision detection pop. This node allowed me to put that collision detection into a group

2. I put that collision detection group into the pop stream node. 

3. Here is the tricky part. I now have to adjust the kinetic_scale attribute to a value of .1. 

Ugh. How do I do that. My VEX knowledge is very limited. 

Advanced thanks.
