View Full Version : about particles instancer

Hi guys, who could tell me if the particles instancer can emit particles from it's surface? and How to make the connections of the nodes.

particles can be a emitter, what about the instancer of particles?

thank you!

The instanced objects can't be the emitter, but the particles they are instanced to could be. It might work if your instanced objects are somewhat spherical and you use the min and max distance attribute for the emitter.
Otherwise you might need to find a way to copy the objects to the particles, although with a lot of emitting surfaces, it could get messy real fast.

Good luck
