Unlink TP Modifier
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.
This is the modifier's interface:
For the 'Falloff' tab, and for the buttons at the bottom of the interface, please see the 'Common interface elements' page.
Uncheck this switch to disable the modifier.
Independent [default setting]
In this mode, 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.
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.
