Particles not emitting from Painted Attribute

Recommended Posts

I want the particles to emit only where the painted attribute exists; unfortunately this is not working, when the POP Source Emission Attribute is set to the attribute name of; emitparticles and the Emission type is set to; Scatter on Surface, rather then only the particles emitting where the attribute is painted; the particles are emitting from the whole geometry ?

Make it a separate issue; there must be a way to get this to work if there is no attribute paint sop.

seriously took me about 2 minutes to get this working with PAINT, not attribpaint

(and no, have never done this before ever, first time here)

no, just Paint,

01) grid (easier to see in XY plane), rot 180 so back face now face the front

02) paint, tick override Color, change Cd to emit, paint an S on the grid

03) Particles shelf, click Source Particle Emitter, select the grid, Enter

04) in DOP, scrub, yes it emits from everywhere.

05) click dropdown in Emission attrib, surprise surpise, it has emit ! Choose it.

Works....you have 2 mins to do this.

I have it figured out; I was using paint differently.
