tyFLOW Beginner Tutorial – Quick Start (3DS Max 2019)

This tyFLOW beginner tutorial will show you everything you need to know about getting started with tyFLOW and learning tyFLOW fast. This tyFLOW beginner tutorial will specifically focus on installing tyFLOW and creating our first particle system — focused on creating multi-colored fireworks.

As simple as this seems, these are in fact core routines that I’ve used in movies and TV commercials alike. So once the foundation is laid out, it can be built into any type of complex system with ease. So what steps are covered in this lesson?

– First we look at what tyFLOW is, where to download it — and how to install it. Everything you need to get started in tyFLOW in minutes.

– Next we begin to look into how tyFLOW works -0 as we create our first particle system — and learn the overall interface and workflow. Throughout the lesson we then begin to build out a Fireworks particle system. This requires us to set conditions, spawns and create a behavioral structure we can then change with ease.

By the end of this lesson, you will be familiar with tyFLOW, and have a complex system built that creates realistic fireworks, of all different colors. And something to then easily build upon into many different more complicated looks and layouts, depending on your ambition level.

I'm in 38min and I think the red ones particles should go higher as its explodes and gets acceleration. Plus the red one spikes into new particles which makes the new ones has less gravity/weight? influences as per a % of the red weight. I also see the green trail going a little up higher and could also be using the delete operator? Its exploding so we have forces in all axy's or its just not looking good/right to me? btw the main trail, at least to me, could be a little thicker and lasts a little more in the air than the yellow ones as the main fire/explosion source is coming from there. I'm not suggestin anything, just thinking. Thank you Allan!! Where's your course? I've to buy
