Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Black Hole Particle System in Cascade?


I'm fairly new to cascade editor and I was wondering how could I go about creating a particle system resebling the one seen in the video below. I don't want the center of the hole to be a black mesh, though- I was thinking about maybe making it a little bit refractive. I also want the stars visible, but blending in with the blueish vortex. Those things I more or less know how to achieve, the refraction is explained in a live training from a week back, and the stars are pretty basic. What I don't know is how do I get the "sucking in" effect going. I was thinking about somehow reversing the flow of particles (I don't know how though), or placing the origin of the particles on the outside, in a circle (still,no idea how). Alternatively I think it can be also done with vector fields, but again, I have no idea how to go about that. Any help as to choosing the right (easiest) way is appreciated. https://youtu.be/dDuKH1di0Mw

Cheers, Mike
