This operation is used in the creation of Particle Fluid waves. Given a group of points created from geometry affected by one or more Waveform operators, Finalize Waves sets appropriate velocities for each point.
A Waveform operator’s Output Wave Velocity Attributes option must be enabled in order for a subsequent Finalize Waves operator to have the desired effect.
The Waveform operator does not generate a volume of points on its own. Once a surface has been modeled as desired using Waveform operators, using Extrude Volume and then Points From Volume will create a set of points that Finalize Waves can act on. These points can then be used to create a Particle Fluid Object that behaves as a wave.
Finalize Waves has no parameters. All relevant information needed for imparting the appropriate point velocities is derived from previous Waveform operators. This is accomplished by means of attributes created when a Waveform’s Output Wave Velocity Attributes option is enabled.
