Bend by Object allows you to change the angle of scattered items so that they rotate away or towards a selected object. It's ideal for illustrating objects interacting with grass or rugs with many other possible applications. To use it:
- Use the Object property to select an object from the scene that will be used to affect the angle of scattered items.
- Use leanOutAmount to change the amount objects will bend. Negative values lean away from the object and positive values lean towards the object.
- Use leanOutDistance to control the distance from the object that the angle change affects. The effect will falloff until it reaches this distance.
- Use randomWiggle to add some rotation variation to the items that are affected by the bend effect.
You can find this Effect within the Forest Effects Library.
This Effect Uses:
Type: Scene Units
