View Full Version : emit particles from faces as opposed to objects?

07 July 2008, 12:27 AM
Is it possible to emit particles in maya from a selection of faces instead of the entire object? I have a crumbling surface and I want to emit tiny particle debris from the cracks and it is easy to select all the side faces.

You can create a BW file texture of where the faces are and emit from the white areas :shrug:

Just an idea, not sure if you can emit straight from face
