View Full Version : particles with expression won't deform

11 November 2006, 01:06 PM
I have 4 [sprite] particle systems all set up with similar expressions and when I apply a lattice deformer [or any deformer for that matter] they ignore it and no deformedParticleShape is created - I thought there was something wrong with my scene so I remade it and when I created the particles in the first place it worked so I carried on but now after writing some expressions to control spriteNumPP, spriteTwistPP, velocity it doesn't deform... I tried it without the velocity expression too thinking somehow there might be a confilct but no joy...
anyone know what the problem is?
Thanks very much in advance

There is no problem as i know.
If you create deformers for particles, it automaticly overides their attributes, meaning, you can't do pretty much anything to control them, as far as you already using deformers.
That's what i remember reading.
