With this tool, the user can create a effect of particles that connect to each other over time... It needs only a pre-built particle system and than it adds all necessary attributes, so the animator can control the appearance of this connections. It also can use any maya's brush to draw the line between the particles.
Here is a playblast test of the script that I've made. As you can see, it creates a good effect connection between particles. The user have full control of the connections and can animate it over time using a ramp and some attributes that the script adds to the particle system.
Pre render test
Here is a pre render test of a scene that this script was used.
And here is the final render of the scene that this script was used.
Attributes added to the particle
Here is maya's channel box. After running the script, this attributes are added to the particle. And manipulating each attribute value, the user can control a lot of aspects of the effect.
The script auto generate this ramp.
Using this ramp, the user can control the animation of the connections and the opacity of the particles.
