Re: Idea Confine command in GPS (Justin Dingley)

I had the same issue. I solved it by creating a source volume as a daughter of the phantom/hole and confine my source to the source volume. i add '/gate/source/sourcename/gps/confine sourcevolume' in my source definition section.

Hope it helps.

Thanks. Regards, Parimalah
