View Full Version : After applying Layer Map to my particles they change position!? Help!

I've setup some particles along a path and they're behaving exactly how I want them.

However, when I apply my own layer map to the particles using Layer Map/Use Layer, I'm getting very different results??

Investigating some more and it seems/appears that when I apply my layer map all the particles positions are being scaled up!!??

Here's a comparison to display what I'm getting:

There seem to be a lot more particles and their direction seems haphazard? Basically they don't appear anything like the little red default particles? I was expecting each red dot to simply be replaced by my newly assigned layer map?

Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong here?

Any help really appreciated.

Well, the layer map thing doesn't work that good...

Try to add an outline to these red dots, it might work better.
