V-MOTION - Mindflow KrakaMotion // Sub-Frame Sampling Krakatoa Particle Generator

KrakaMotion allows you to generate any amount of sub-frames from a given timeline. If you have an animation setup which works for 200 frames but changing the animation to 1000 frames gives a different result, if you need to time-bend it or play it at a slower rate, then you can use KrakaMotion to generate these missing particles.

UI is not implemented yet. Change the sample value in the code from 20 to the amount you desire, and render out as many particle sub-frames as you want (created in the folder of where your particles are stored). 1000 particle frames x 20 sampling = 20,000 particle frames.

These you can use to time-bend and remap with the Krakatoa PRT Loader. Don't forget to set timeline to ticks, and use highest sub-frame settings in PFlow for rendering.

I used KrakaMotion for my Bachelor Thesis in the piece "Moments" to slow the Superflow Particle animation down, see video. If you are interested in making images like this then check out Superflow Elements http://www.scriptspot.com/3ds-max/scripts/superflow-elements.

// Anyone is welcome to add a UI //
