Fuse Particles emiters question

Hello guys
I am slowly moving to Fuse and there are a few things I would like to do and I would love some advice on how to start them
First of all, PLY importer its working great for me, so I don´t need to re do the sequential reader to avoid vvvv to crash. I wont be getting this “chunk” effect

but I would love to achieve this kind of effects

where a point cloud is loaded and modified due to attractors or forces

I was able to get the point cloud data as a spread of values from the PLY node, but I am not sure how to use the buffers from there

With the GetFromBuffer nodes I can make a buffer to make it render on a probability emitter, but that’s a lots of particles, It works with the bunny file, but I am dealing with 100mb files… I wan to read just the exact amount of particles… what emiter should I use ?

I would love to achive something like this

I can do it like this, but I am not sure how to add any fuse mods like curlnoise to this chain

Hey! You can use compute stage for it. There is an example.

Do you have any idea how change buffers from one ply system to another?

Hey @Zelesha thanks for the reply
Let me know if this is correct, can you upload your plyreader vl document… and the ply file that you used ?
I am not getting nothing by doing this

I think you do it right. But you can check my example. I’ve used apply transform for changing scale and position in renderer

Is it possible, given a pointclud data read

yes. I used this examples:

But it maybe too heavy

Example from github converter works too
