14:26:12@tsahyt:tsahyt.comtsahytyea apparently I was misusing it. starting from vertex weights that are all 1 it does something
14:26:44@tsahyt:tsahyt.comtsahytso basically I'd create a vertex group on the sphere, set all the weights to 1, use that modifier with the tracks as the target object, and then use that vertex group for the density of the particle system.
14:27:25@tsahyt:tsahyt.comtsahytfor some reason the particle system doesn't update automatically
14:27:42@zero-ghost:matrix.orgZero-ghostah makes sense
14:29:06@tsahyt:tsahyt.comtsahytyou can see the effect of the modifier in weight paint mode though. It seems like you have to apply it in order for it to work with the particle system. or perhaps it'd work in a render regardless
14:39:03@zero-ghost:matrix.orgZero-ghostwhere do i set all the weights of the vertex group?
14:44:00@tsahyt:tsahyt.comtsahytEither by just painting them all or you can select them all in edit mode and click the assign button in the object data properties tab.
14:45:08@zero-ghost:matrix.orgZero-ghostyea i just painted the whole sphere
14:46:15@zero-ghost:matrix.orgZero-ghoststill not getting it to work
14:46:22@zero-ghost:matrix.orgZero-ghosti probably did something wrong but yea
14:51:29@zero-ghost:matrix.orgZero-ghostin that modifier, setting the 'distance' option to 'geometry' works though
14:53:06@zero-ghost:matrix.orgZero-ghostbut doesnt show in the render
14:53:28@zero-ghost:matrix.orgZero-ghostcan just see in weight paint mode what should be the correct weight change
14:55:49@tsahyt:tsahyt.comtsahytplay around with the lowest and highest settings. that worked for me. lowest should be > 0 to get areas where there really are no particles
14:56:21@tsahyt:tsahyt.comtsahythere's a test scene I just made
15:03:49@zero-ghost:matrix.orgZero-ghostyea seems like i have the same basic settings in all those places
15:04:07@zero-ghost:matrix.orgZero-ghostbut it wont render with the correct weight
15:07:38@zero-ghost:matrix.orgZero-ghostyea you were right, after i apply the modifier it worked
15:07:43@zero-ghost:matrix.orgZero-ghostbut... :-\
15:43:29@tsahyt:tsahyt.comtsahytEventually it also worked live for me. No idea why, this might be a bug.
