Blender 2.80 - Particle System (using objects) and Weight Paint

#1

I have weight painted a tree and have a separate leaf object. I am trying to use the particle system in Blender 2.80 to assign the leaf object to the branches/twigs (weight-painted) on the tree.

I can assign the “Instance Object” (the leaf) to the tree, but I can’t get the object to render on ONLY the weight-painted areas of the tree. Anyone know how this is done in 2.80?

Thanks!!

EDIT (screenshot added): Instead of the weight-paint route, I decided to assign vertex group to the twigs/branches. The problem is that a lot of the leaves are going through the mesh. How do I solve this?

EDIT #2: Doesn’t seem like you can convert particle system to mesh in 2.80? Anyone has gotten this to work?

Hi Taklon,

Has you picked up our blender Environments course?
It is in 2.8 and we cover this there :slight_smile:
