Hi Dani,

Well, if you really want it, you could build your own VOP POP using a point cloud lookup. It comes at a cost though.

The Maximum distance I figured was a distance roll-off, but instead it's just distance clipping - it does not alter the strenght, it only clips whether or not it's applied, which is weird, maybe a bug? - so I guess the fan pop doesn't work (would be nice to have a distance fall-off added as an option).
