The Inheritance Effector is probably one of the most underrated and underutilized effectors in the effector menu - and it's probably one of my favorite effectors to mess around with! In this tutorial, I'll show you how you can easily create particle simulation morph-type animations using only the Mograph Module, Effectors, and Dynamics. Using a combination of the super powerful Inheritance Effector and other Mograph Effectors and Deformers, you can achieve close to the same effect as an Emitter, Thinking Particles, or X-Particles as a simpler alternative in your normal workflow without having to touch Xpresso or learn some new particle system or buy plug-ins.

Here is what I created using this technique:
