Hey Guys,

I am trying to get POPs to emit a finite element.

I have a simple setup where I am birthing a particle every 50 frames and having this fed into DOPs where the finite element solver takes over. 

The problem is I cant seem to source more then 1 instance of the object into Dops. 

I have attached a scene file I hope someone can help.

Thanks,

Clive

have a search for a recent thread by @ParticleSkull he's been doing a very similar thing spawning instances of a fem object - i dont think it relies on pops setup tho

Hey Clive, it's here, check it out. 

The solution don't use the pop solver but I believe it would totally work for you

Hey Guys,

Thanks for this I will take a look. I did end up finding a solution to my problem but without the need for POPs.

I ended up using a single expression with a modulo function within the creation frame parameter to source my object on specific frames.

Here is the the expression I used, if anyone is interested. if($F%20==0,$F,-1)

This worked pretty nicely but I am still interested in using POPs as an emitter source to birth the instanced FEM object. I am going to explore this further when I have the time.

If I figure this out I will post a Hip file here.

Thanks,

Clive

Cool! Yeah, we did something similar at the  creation frame parameter as well. 
Let me know if you achieve something with pop.

Cheers,
Alvaro
