ARNOLD + PARTICLE FLOW

CAN SOMEONE PLEASE DO THIS AS TUTOR DID IN HIS TUTORIAL >

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QpktW0H_8RI

I have tried to do this and succeeded with scanline renderer.

However when I tried to do exactly same when arnold was main renderer it was impossible.

So my question to anyone who is working in arnold company, best would be a developer > is this possible to do with arnold or not? If not than it is a big problem regarding 3dsmax's built in particles and data manipulation and forces users to buy third party plugins or switch software completely and renders them useless!!!

Of course anyone here whether a user or technician or developer who knows answer please explain since and you'll agree with this it is very important...

thnks in advance

I'm using 3ds max 2022.01

Vray 5 update 2.1 is working with data tests so far, only ARNOLD ISN'T

That's a 34 minute video. Can you upload a simple example scene?

You may want to have a look at TyFlow. Is much better then Particle Flow and Arnold can render it with some adjustments. If you need upload a scene, use wetransfer.

I have been using tyflow and it is great, but at some point it will be paid plugin, but that is beyond the point what I'm traying to say.

If autodesk decides to neglect max Particles, it is a shame but not okay, since it's very ''coslty'' piece of software, but If you'll be advertising a 3dsmax as a pro DCC app can do film, tv, particles, etc, then you should say up-front > we don't give a damn about particles, go buy tyflow, or thinking particles. Even deprecated mental-ray was fully integrated in PF, so is it autodesk to blame or guys building arnold for laziness?
arnold is great but c'mon...
