View Full Version : Instancing question

11-11-2014, 10:12 PM
It seems that this should be pretty simple but I can't for the life of me figure this out. I want to add a bunch of small little "fingers" to a ball and have them point out along the poly normals of the ball but none of the standard generation types in the instancing panel seem to do this. I went into the Node editor thinking that would be the ticket but I can't find an "along normal" :) node that seems to do this. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Try this.

Check the Rotation tab in the instance generator, it is set to Normal.

Damn .. DJ beat me to it.

Thanks guys! I figured it would be something simple I was overlooking.
