Vortex AffectorApplies a rotational velocity to a field.
This node modifies the movement vectors of a field to give a rotational velocity about an axis. Useful for creating tornado effects.
The outputs from this node are just its transforms, useful for having multiple nodes follow the same motions without controlling each of their transforms individually.
These properties control the 3D transforms of the node. Transforms will generally be inherited by child nodes, although they can be ignored through the Inherit Transform Channels attributes.
|Position X||Move along the local x-axis.|
|Position Y||Move along the local y-axis.|
|Position Z||Move along the local z-axis.|
|Rotation Heading||Rotate around the local y-axis.|
|Rotation Pitch||Rotate around the local x-axis.|
|Rotation Bank||Rotate around the local z-axis.|
|Scale X||Scale along the local x-axis.|
|Scale Y||Scale along the local y-axis.|
|Scale Z||Scale along the local z-axis.|
Toggle which transform channels should be inherited from the parent node. By default, all transforms will be inherited.
|Position X||Toggle inheritance of the X Position from the parent.|
|Position Y||Toggle inheritance of the Y Position from the parent.|
|Position Z||Toggle inheritance of the Z Position from the parent.|
|Rotation Heading||Toggle inheritance of the Rotation Heading from the parent.|
|Rotation Pitch||Toggle inheritance of the Rotation Pitch from the parent.|
|Rotation Bank||Toggle inheritance of the Rotation Bank from the parent.|
|Scale X||Toggle inheritance of the X Scale from the parent.|
|Scale Y||Toggle inheritance of the Y Scale from the parent.|
|Scale Z||Toggle inheritance of the Z Scale from the parent.|
|World Position Only||Inherit the world position from the parent only, rotation and scale will be ignored. Overrides above properties.|
|Inherit Time||Toggle inheritance of time from the parent.|
These properties control the core behaviours of the node.
|Velocity Amount||Scale the generated affector velocities.|
|Spread Angle||Controls how much the spread there is from the field velocities generated.|
|Vortex Angle Scale||Change how quickly field moves around the vortex centre dependant on distance from it.|
|Outward Velocity Amount / Blend||Control the speed at which the particles are pushed out from the vortex centre.|
|Radius||The outer radius for which the affector is active.|
|Randomness||The randomness of the new velocities added to the simulation.|
|Vortex Position Node||Change the position of the point the field orbits around.||Null|
|Mask Node||Masks the areas in which the affector won’t apply.||Image Plane|
|Affected Emitters||Choose which particle emitters can be affected by the affector.||Primitive Emitter|
|Transform Modifier||Apply the transforms of another node to this node.||Null|
|Target Node||Modifiy the rotations of the node to always direct the z axis towards the input.||Null|
|Local Transform Override||Apply the transforms of another node to this node, relative to its parent.||Null|
