Growing Money or Other Object on a Tree
on Mar 13, 2018 at 6:13:58 pm

I'm using hair object and material to create a tree but can't seem to figure out how to grow money/currency symbols/other object from the twigs.

What would be the best way creating money growing randomly on a tree? Can I use still use hair object or is there a better way to do it?

Do you have the Mograph module? It works well with hair (In fact, if your not doing actual coiffed hair we prefer the mograph module for controlling the hair particle system over the hair system itself). You can have your money object appear anywhere along a specific "branch" of your hair splines and using a "random" or "shader" effector have that money appear at random times, sizes, orientations and even with different deformations (so some are curled and some are not).
You can also use the "wiping" feature in the effectors to wipe the money on from lower branches first to upper branches last.
