SiScatter 2.0Author: Julien Carmagnac
A scattering plugin from Julien Carmagnac, author of »Instance On Curve«. SiScatter offers a high level of control over the scatter placement:

This scatter tool distributes particles based on the »emTool _ Equal Distribution on Surface« Compound from Eric Mootz (thank you Eric !). I tweak this compound to work together with »Delete Particles Near to Boundaries Edges«, »remove closest geometry« and »remove inside filter« compounds.

This tool build an ICE Tree and create a custom property under the point cloud object to tweak all ICE parameters. So you can edit entirely your scattering without open your ICE Tree. List of avalaible modifiers: color by gradient color by shape id color by texture map filter by boundary edge filter by closest geo filter by fractal filter by random

You don't write the name of the image file. You just access the texture map that contains the image.

Hello @yashugan !

Thank you for your comment !
About texture map, I notice that you just need to recreate the "Get Data" node inside the "siScatter _ Filter by Texture Map" compound : cf. screenshot
I don't understand why for now, I need to investigate more..

A way more simple solution :
Just disconnect the "siScatter _ Emitter" node, and that will be ok (it may make a double reference that create a sort of path error).

Yes, I will update the addon, but in the meantime it may work !
cf. gif animation for the full explanation step by step (sorry for the gif size/compression..)

Let me know if you still have problem.

I've just upload a new version of siScatter (1.6) with :
  • - New alignment options based on emitter's border edge :
    • Cutoff distance
      Orientation offset with variance
    - A new option in "Filter C" tab :
    • an accurate Neighbors delete with distance option
    - Bug correction on Texture Map
Cheers

No problem, that's probably because you need to rebuild a new version of siScatter from scratch.
Let me know.
