Method

This node shades particles based on pixels sampled from an image or input video source.

For this node to operate an image must be supplied either via the Image attribute or connected via the Image Node input. When an Image Plane node is connected to the Image Node input the transform from the image plane will be used, so the sampled pixels in the displacement map deformer correspond with the pixels on the image plane in 3D space.

Example

Attributes

Name Description
Image Override the input image with an image selected from the drop down menu.
Warp X Mode Changes what happens at the edge of the particle image along the x axis.
  • Clamp, the colours of the image on the left and right of the image are stretched to fill space.
  • Repeat, the whole image is repeated to the left and right of the image to fill space.
  • Mirror, the image is mirrored repeatedly until the space is filled.
  • Border, the image is clipped and filled with black.
  • Clip, the image is clipped, and filled with white.
Warp Y Mode Changes what happens at the edge of the particle image along the y axis.
  • Clamp, the colours of the image above and below the image are stretched to fill empty space.
  • Repeat, the whole image is repeated above and below the image to fill empty space.
  • Mirror, the image is mirrored repeatedly until the space is filled.
  • Border, the image is clipped and empty space is filled with black.
  • Clip, the image is clipped, and empty space is filled with white.
Blend Mode Choose how the particle colours blend to the source colours
Blend Amount Control how much the shader affects the particles.

Inputs

Name Description Typical Node Input
Image Node The image source node. If an Image Plane is used, its transformation values are used too. Video Node
Affected Emitters Choose which emitters can be affected by the affector. Primitive Emitter
Transform Modifier Links all transform properties to the input node. Null
Target Node Always faces the x-axis towards the inputs anchor point. Null
Local Transform Override Override the transformation values of the node, relative to its parent. Null
