Hi,

the command for direct control is "DeviceSetParam,SiteID,DeviceID,ParamName,AbsoluteValue"

here are all the ParamNames.

Particle System|Particle Emitter|X Pos
Particle System|Particle Emitter|Y Pos
Particle System|Particle Emitter|Z Pos

Or control it via a PB Device Control Node.

Cheers,
Benni

We are using the PB Devivce node, but the particle emitter channel is only once presented in this node, not 3 times for all the axis.
Maybe bidirectional connectio between PB and WD is important so widget can see there's a particle active on a layer?

Now we're using an UDP Connection.
