This looks great! However, I'm getting an error that the GLSL number is not supported on my GPU (Radeon Pro 460). I'm entirely new to GLSL. Where can I learn more about this and get around this error.

The shaders in this example are written in GLSL 4.00 and 4.50.
Your Radeon Pro 460 card can support GLSL 4.50, but I'm taking a wild guess that you are using a mac? MacOS only supports GLSL 3.30.

Coincidentally I converted this example to GLSL 3.30 for another mac user last week, see my post here and try that: viewtopic.php?f=27&t=9798#p37082

Thanks so much for the shared tox - it looks beautiful and it's super fast!

Updated it so that each particle leaves a trail behind it. The trails are created by connecting the positions texture to a Texture 3D TOP and rendered in the vertex shader similarly to the current positions. It's especially useful for VR particle systems.

This looks amazing. I'm trying to understand what's happening. Is there a way I can connect my mouse to adjust where the particle is moving instead of having it randomly move?

Or actually. I think I figured out how to change positions by adjusting the finalGeo SOP. But my question is how ot change the direction of the wind? Right now, it's always pulling to the right. How would one be able to make it pull down towards the bottom instead? THanks so much!
