I found an example of how to do this from Jeff, from way back in 2001,
and it still opens in H 8.2.
Basically, create an attribute POP last in your chain, vector type, name
"txp", $TX, $TY, $TZ
Then, up the chain, a vel pop, with "vector3($TX-$TXPX, $TY-$TXPY,
$TZ-$TXPZ)" as expression, apply only to a group that includes only the
I couldn't get it to work in component mode, which is where I was going
I think it would be much simpler if SESI would just make the creep POP
