pop replicate 1st vs 2nd input

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

just been learning pop replicate, all makes sense except for the difference between the first and second input.

Checking the help i'm still no wiser.  Testing it myself in the scene i can't seem to find any cases where it makes any difference?  I know that must be wrong.  Can someone give an example of when you might use the second input over the first?

Thanks

The second input is "Reference Stream". You will notice a difference if you are merging the replicated points back in. In the left input, there will be double what you expect With it in the right input, the points will be replicated based on the input, but when you merge them back in there will be the correct amount. Check this example, I think it will help.
