Apologies if this has been asked before - tried searching for hours but found no solution.
I am trying to scatter overhanging plants on Z-overlapping terraces in Image distribution mode. The reason I'm not using Path mode is because I need to use groups of plant types in clusters, which only Image mode can do.
The problem is the stacking gets disabled whenever I use:
1. Density falloff in the Areas rollout. This is easy enough to work around using an exclude spline.
2. Effects. Doesn't seem to matter what preset I use, as soon as I click Add Effect (before any effects exist), the stacking breaks.
Appreciate if you could shed any light on this.
