DCP Particle Speed
bit of a hack to display Particle Speed...where the particles ARE that is...
Extract preset to:
C:\Users\xxx\AppData\Local\Autodesk\3dsMax\2017 - 64bit\ENU\en-US\plugcfg\DataChannelPresets
Then in your DCM (on a Mesher that is, coz DCM needs a mesh to work on, it can't work directly with PF), load it as a Preset.
ver 1.01: Maxscript op now will use correct (auto) frame rate
To Declutter the display, since it displays 4 vert speed (or however many verts you have in your 'shape') that are the same, simply make the shape tiny so the displays are on top of each other...see attached image
