basic jitter particle patch

January 3, 2009 | 12:05 am

I’m trying to get my head around the jit.p.shiva help patch. I understand the basic concept of it. What I want to do is copy one of the example techniques (the one where the particles flow in a straight line) into my own patch and this is where I’m completely stuck. The ‘control’ patcher seems to do a whole lot within this patch but its very hard to break down whats doing what, especially when I’m a jitter novice. Does anyone know of any PDF’s that begin explaining particle systems in Jitter from the ground up or something similar? I basically need a little more help than the help file is giving me.

Cheers, john

Hi johno,

Here’s a simplification of the help patch which might get you going. It’s set up to emit in a straight line. Maybe this will be a little easier to break down.

best,
Zachary

Disregard the last one, look at this one instead.

Thanks very much, man, you’re a legend. That patch is really helpful. I can actually start to deconstruct it without wanting to pop my eye balls out. I was really beginning to lose the plot yesterday.

Thanks Again,

Johno
