Hi,

I noticed Corona Scatter has the spline option, but for sloped terrain drawing splines is not ideal, instead, I want to sculpt a river and with a linear field eliminate the instances that fall below certain Y value.

Is this possible? How would you approach it otherwise?

Hi, does adjusting the ''slope from'' help you?

Hi, thanks. I am afraid that will not work. I have other slopes that do need scattering. Also my river is not so steep, it is more of a water steam.



Guess I will have to go with the old reliable Cloner+Plain Effector+Linear Field and scale by -1 clones that fall below -Y. Quite expensive as it has to calculate everything anyways and there is no camera clipping...  but oh well

It is actually so much more flexible to just sculpt topography and have your clones come up or not depending on your brush strokes. Imagine now I want to change the river direction and I need to sculp + create more splines....
