Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Particle system that spits out random textures

Hi I'm tying to create particle system that spits out random grains of sand from either multiple textures or a single texture with 4x4 grid of different sand grains, how should I go about doing this?

Hey LiquidJoy,

There is a great little tutorial that shows you exactly how you would set up this process to get the particle effect. In short you will set up a Sub-UV particle effect within a material, and the emitter would choose which tile that is sub-divided at random to generate. I will go ahead and tell you that your texture will need to be re-sized and re-organized so the sub-division does not cut off any of the pebbles/rock images you are using. Aside from that just follow the tutorial in the link provided and let me know how it turns out!
