Houdini 20.0 Shelf tools

Wind on Particles shelf tool

Applies wind to particles.

On this page


Unlike POP Force, which continuously accelerates particles, POP Wind acts as a drag pulling particles to the ambient wind speed.

Using Wind on Particles

  1. Click the Wind on Particles button on the Particles shelf tab.

  2. Select the particle system you want to be affected and press Enter to confirm your selection.

    The Wind POP simulates a pushing force like wind, that can increase the velocity of particles but not past its own speed.

  3. Set the Wind Velocity to control the direction and magnitude of the wind, and the Air Resistance to control the intensity of the wind on the POP Wind node.

For specific parameter help, see the POP Wind node help.
