Here is a snipet of a data stream setup I made at Motion 504 for the Target Fall National 2013. It’s not the whole piece, just a piece of one section. The setup I made allowed me to get a completely different animation just by changing the spline. The camera follows the head of the stream while randomly moving around to give it a little more chaos. Thinking Particles are being generated along the spline then cloned on to for most of the elements. I created a little Xpresso setup that would let me change things easily along the way. Below are the 3 style frames for the different sections along with a simple look at the setup.
