Krakatoa TP Source

Last edited on April 14, 2014


The Krakatoa renderer requires scene objects that can generate particles to provide a Krakatoa-compatible particle stream with all data to be rendered.

The Krakatoa TP Source object implements the conversion of CINEMA 4D Thinking Particles to a Krakatoa-compatible particle stream.



To create a new Krakatoa TP Source, select the Menu > Plugins > Krakatoa > Krakatoa TP Source item.
