rotation around spline
« on: October 28, 2019, 06:45:12 AM »
Is there a way to achieve this kind of effect for hair brush bristles? How they are rotated around the head differently based where they are. I also tried to add surface but doesn't seem to work .

I cant find solution with RailClone, but maybe ForestPack can help with Path distribution mode and In Vertex Positions Mode:

hmmm it helped with rotation in Z but I still need the bristles to be at angle in vertical position like in my raiclone and with forestpack I can't do it somehow.

Ok I just added taper modifier on top of forest and it took care of it (too bad that it's destroying a bit , shape of bristles but I guess the're no way around it.)
Thank you Rokas!

Yes surface normal slider helps, hopefully this result satisfies.

Thanks for sharing this nice example of ForestPack usage.
