Using metaballs as particles in blender

I love metaballs and the surfaces they generate since I used them in Povray. For this animation I used them to render the particles of a particle system. Works really good and is very cool because the particles also interact with other meta-objects of the scene. A really cool way to model slime, brains or similar stuff.

as usual you can download the blend file here

    Thanks for this. I was having trouble getting metaballs + particles to work and this helped heaps.
