Have you ever wanted a particle based water spray for a scene in Poser or DAZ Studio? Have you wrestled with particle systems only to achieve frustration? If you want a quick easy way to create a particle like effects without the headache this tool is for you!
The Nerd3D Sprayer Tool gives you the power to create a spray of water, wine, acid, or whatever else you can dream up without the complexity of a real particle system. Still it does a lot of the things you'd expect from particles without the mystery or problems. There is an emitter where the droplets originate. There is a target where they are directed and removed from the scene. The droplets are really added and removed from the scene not just made invisible. This makes the tool very geometry efficient with little impact on render times. There is no need to calculate particle simulations.
So how does it work? As far as DAZ Studio and Poser are concerned this is just a figure. There are no scripts, no plugins, nothing weird. Well nothing too weird anyway. This is all done with slaved movement channels, geometry switches, fancy math and a little Nerd3D Magic. Don't worry the math is hidden deep inside you won't need to bother with it.
All you have to do is place the emitter where the stream starts then use the dials in the control group to place the target where you want the stream to go. Spin the "Spray" dial and watch the drop fly from the emitter to the target. You can see in real time where the drops go and how fast. The set includes several poses and animations to help you get stared using this powerful tool. The set also includes a tool to create little splats where the stream is directed. This adds to the realism of the scenes you create.
So what doesn't it do? It's not real gravity the drops move at a constant speed. The drops don't obey physics so the don't collide with anything. They Just fly to the target and disappear.
