Trail sop breaking when trail increment different than 1

Recommended Posts

I am doing a small rain system.

When i add the trail sop, followed by an add to connect the point with the ID attribute, everything works fine until i set the trail increment to a value different than 1, then it completely breaks.

I believe it is because particle are dying, but i cannot figure out how to debug it

from the doc:

 

When using a Particle SOP or Spring SOP as input, it is important to keep the trail increment to integer values. Otherwise, the trail will not work well.

hello,

one work around is to put after your trail, an Add node that you set Polygons --- by Group, then Add by attribute id.

It becomes a curve that you can control the length with a Carve node for exemple, you can put a resample after also to add more points.
