Unlink TP Modifier

Summary

If an emitter is generating Thinking Particles, this modifier can be used to unlink a Thinking Particle from its corresponding X-Particle. At that point, the generated Thinking Particles are no longer controlled by the X-Particles system. The Thinking Particle cannot later be re-linked back to the X-Particle.

Interface

This is the modifier's interface:

For the 'Groups Affected' and 'Falloff' tabs, and for the buttons at the bottom of the interface, please see the 'Common interface elements' page.

Parameters

Uncheck this switch to disable the modifier.

Mode

Independent [default setting]

In this mode, the modifier will work in the same way as a standard Cinema 4D particle modifier: particles will be affected if they come into the field of effect of the modifier. X-Particle Actions have no effect on the modifier in this mode.

Action-Controlled

In this mode, the modifier will only act on a particle when told to do so by an Action. Until that point, the particle will not be affected, but once activated for a particular particle, the modifier will continue to influence it as long as it is in the field of effect of the modifier. The modifier's effect on a particle can be halted by means of another Action, if desired.
