109 Vector fields in .fga format for Niagara and Cascade.
This is a collection of 109 vector fields and a series of example emitters for Niagara and Cascade. The vector fields are in .fga format and vary in size according to the effect and detail needed.
The vector fields were authored in Houdini from a number of sources including pyro and fluid simulations, procedural spline networks, meshes, l-systems and more, resulting in a wide variety of effects.
Some fields are intended for use as velocity fields as are used in Cascade and Niagara both, while others are intended for Niagara's capability to use vector fields as forces. Effects include starter velocities for explosions and pyro, shapes like stars and platonic solids, wind tunnel turbulent effects, vertices, flat and spherical force fields, etc.
Also included are a number of heavier Niagara effects including two example module scripts, one which limits particle movement and another which constrains all particles to the surface of a sphere.

Important/Additional Notes: Materials kept intentionally simple to highlight the effect of the vector fields themselves - there is a tremendous amount of room for the user to create much more spectacular effects with these fields than are demonstrated!
