    Only certain types of image file formats support Alpha channels. In your post, the PScone.jpg *appears* to have transparency (the tiny gray-and-white squares portion), but JPG file format doesn't...

    I still don't have a good idea of what you're really trying to accomplish. You can use deformations on the "base object" for the instancer, but all the instances will deform the same. The Time...

    I'm not sure what you're really after, but you can use a node setup in the Instancer to displace the instances using a Procedural Texture, which is then scaled by a Weight Map. Sample LW2015 scene...

    Particles, HVs and an Animation Path wind, maybe? A very quick-n-dirty LW2015 scene attached. I'll leave it up to the PBR experts to use LW2018 volumetrics instead of HVs, if desired. I *used* the...

    It may not meet your needs, but an old-school approach to an atmosphere gradient (e.g. around a planet) is to combine two Edge Transparency shaders, one with its mode set to Opaque and the other with...

    For non-intersecting instances, I've used the Merge Points with a Fixed distance to eliminate points that are "too close" for the instanced geometry.
