    Hello!

    I love the pack!

    Was wondering if you knew an easy way to avoid seeing the original blue texture when the dissolve effect is called.

    I'm trying not to see the pattern (blue and gold) when the dissolve is called.
    I'm attempting to achieve a dissolve effect when an Enemy AI dies.

    Most likely the enemy AI will be a simple base/missed color.

    P.S. Sorry for the video quality.

    If not, I'll just mess with the timing.

                      Hello

                      I trying to use the spherical Helper + the right materials in order to make multiples objects apears...

                      My problem is that only the object super close to the Helper get affected.
                      I ve tried with and without distance_based_deactivation, but it seems there is a hard limite to the affect distance ?

                        looks really cool, what about something like "starcraft warp" ?

                            Hi Adrien, thanks for purchasing the product!

                            If I correctly understood the situation, you need to use a larger value in the switch_radius_multiplier parameter. It's explained in the 10th page of the documentation. If you'd like to use distance_based_deactivation as well, you'll need an even larger value in the deactivation_distance_multiplier parameter.

                            I hope this helps.

                            CriErr, thank you! I'm busy with other stuff now but thanks for the suggestion

                            macoll, thank you too! Are you talking about MODO's MeshFusion? I'm learning MODO right now and that's an awesome tool!

                              Hi!

                              I'd like to know your opinion about a potential improvement to ADFX.

                              Basically, in the variants that use a helper, a parameter is multiplied with the object radius to calculate the max distance over which the effects work. I noticed it's a better idea to add the object radius and the helper radius before the multiplication.

                              Since I haven't received any complaints, it kind of sounds like fixing something that's not broken. Also, if someone replaced the original assets with new ones, they'd have to re-adjust a parameter and that might involve testing stuff.

                              So, any opinions are more than welcome!
