Instanced Lines, Broken Falloff

Post by five31 » Tue Jul 16, 2019 12:36 pm

Hi,

Falloff does not seem to be working on lines that have been instanced. Attached is an example file.

Thank you,

Liam

Hey Liam,

The issue here is that the Instancer generates packed geometry, and your intent is to spread falloff over the points of the packed geometry. If you enable "Display Points" in the viewport, you can see that the packed points that represent the lines you've generated are all lined up neatly along the Z axis at the origin. If you want to affect the lines themselves rather than their packed representations, you need to first unpack.

Please let me know if you have any other questions!
