Hi guys, I'm modeling a tree that will be in a scene I'd like to post on the site soon, I'm having issues now distributing "leaves" on the branches of my model. I'm placing the many branches of my tree manually, but I'd very much like to distribute the leaves at the top of those branches automaticly using Particle Flow. I'd like to be able to keep full control over the emitted object "leave" (Custom Particle shape, Color, Rotation, Etc) and I'd like to distribute only "1" particle per "selected face"...I chose to work with "face" there cause I want the particles to be orientated following the face local axis infos. I have in mind that this is possible using a simple script that would say something like :

"create 1 particle on each selected face following the local axis of the face"

If you think you know a free script that could do the thing or you think you can come up with one yourself, I'd really appreciate it and will give credits when posting out.

Thanks in advance,

Adrien
