  1. scatter on thin geometry

    Thanks for the hints... I went the texture space way... had to do a little funny loop through a COP to get the density map in UV space (as it was a point attribute before) but it seems after a few tweaks to the relaxation parameters I ended up with exactly the result that I wanted! Yaay! Now I'm wondering if there is a way to somehow save my mapping between the scattered points and my geometry so that when the creature starts deforming the points will stick to where they were... but that's another subject.. Thanks! B.
  2. scatter on thin geometry

    Hi All, I am scattering points on a creature. So far so good. I can get pretty much what I'm after. I'm using density driven by attribute which is noise based. The scattered points are relaxed nicely to get an organic distribution. Now my problem is - some parts of the creature are really thin, like fins of a fish. Here, the scatter function thinks points that end up on the opposite sides of the fin add up to the density, so there are far fewer points that I would need. Is there a way to discriminate points by their normal vector before the relax function kicks in? I.e. when calculating density based on proximity, just ignore points with opposite-facing normal? Cheers, B.
