Using Filter to Control Particles in RealFlow

In this series of lessons we'll learn how to use the Filter daemon to separate our particles into multiple emitters that we can then individually control with exclusive links. This gives us an incredible amount of control that would have to script in otherwise. We'll begin this project by setting up our initial objects, emitters and daemons. Once we have everything ready to go, we'll introduce our filter daemon and examine exactly how it works, and how we can use it to move particles into different emitters. Once we have the filter daemon working, we can use exclusive links to affect our emitters in various ways. We'll then look at various attributes and ways of changing particle values to show the vast range of different methods we can use to filter particles. We'll then combine our knowledge along with a few more daemons to create an interested effect.
