Scatter points on displaced surface

Recommended Posts

I have a plane I am scattering some points on and eventually, I will instance geometry onto those points. The plane has a shader on with displacement which is fine but it causes my geometry to be covered by the displacement in some instances. Is there any way I can translate my points with the displacement so this doesn't happen?

I am grateful for any suggestions :)

Yes. See the paragraph Making scattered points stick on changing geometry  in the scatter node documentation.
