Request: Particle Initial Velocity Modifier

If I’m not mistaken, the only way to change the initial velocity of the particle along the SOP’s normal is to manually edit the normals, like for example doing a SOP to CHOP > Math > CHOP to SOP picture below.

It would be great if there was just a slider parameter on the Particle SOP that modified the initial velocity along the normals instead of having to use 3 additional OPs.

If there’s a better way to do this already, maybe I’m unaware.

In the meantime you can use a Point SOP to scale normals. Or a script SOP

Thanks @Achim

How do you use the Point SOP to scale their length? When I tried using Point SOP, it seemed to make them all go in one direction.

Not in front of TD. But it’s something like
