align to surface in one direction only
« on: April 28, 2021, 11:37:08 AM »
Hi,
its possible to alight objects to surface only to one direction. I have Crowd of horses and I want them to align only in theirs Y direction, so they will not lean to sides whenn running on steep terrain.

For this case, I would use the tyFlow plugin and its modifier tyConform. I would apply tyConform to the curves and use these curves for the FP distribution.

yes I could but I really dont want to learn another plugin. FP is good and reliable and the crowd is super simple and far from camera. It should be possible via effects but Im not familiar with it.

So, use Glue (iToo plugin) and put spline to surface.
