Hi, I’m using particle instances to dress a background mountain prop.
To get random rotation and scale, I use an expression at Runtime before Dynamics.
This get’s me the desired look.
However, every time I re-open my scene, it generates a New random seed, so the trees are never in the same scale or rotation. This gives me issues with renderpasses or re-renders, as things shift.
Am I able to freeze or make the random rotation and scale the same every time?
Can I hook them up with a noise map and Control them by using that?
I don’t want to use x-gen, I’m on Maya 2015, and using redshift3D as my renderer, and the pipeline with x-gen is not optimal.
I’ve tried to export the instances to geometry instances, but it’s to many, and bugs the system Down.
If I could use my simple particle setup, but get the same results every time, it would be brilliant.
This is my current expression;
nParticleMountainLowVegShape.indexPP = nParticleMountainLowVegShape.particleId%3;
nParticleMountainLowVegShape.RandomRotationPP = <<rand(25),rand(360),rand(25)>>;
nParticleMountainLowVegShape.RandomScalePP = rand(0.6,1.5);
Would anyone be able to give me a direction to move in in layman terms?
