[SOLVED] Convert Volume from PyroFX - missing Velocity Oct. 27, 2020, 3:23 p.m.

Thanks for comming back with the solution

Ocean Surface material - where is Attenuation? Aug. 8, 2019, 9:20 a.m.

Hello, after a small nightmare with switching to new whitewater system I'm a bit stuck with rendering an ocean shot:

I would like to see a structure in water dissapear slowly into the abyss. Because Mantra is quite slow I don't want to use the volumes or a uniform volume shader for that (which is recommended). Absorption/Attenuation would be ok I think but it's missing from the Ocean Surface material! It's mentioned in the manual… What's going on? Any ideas how to switch it on? I've attachned a screenshots, maybe I'm not looking at this correctly.

Extra question - any ideas why Mist shelf tool was removed? We're supposed to build our onw on Pyro, right?

Wiresolver - stick/stop on collision Dec. 5, 2017, 12:48 p.m.

Set the wiresolver2 Tolerance to 0.5.
Thanks - this helps to cheat a bit but the force is still influencing the wires, they still wiggle a bit.

I will try to build what derrick suggested but this is new ground for me so time will tell.

As far as I understand the Wiresolver is a bit different and doesn't have a built in simple “disable sim” attribute for the points of the wire.

Thank you very much for the tips.
