I am working on a project and used a particle system to create the branches of a tree. I am now trying to make take that tree and create another particle system in order to create a forest with many of these trees. The problem is when I create the second particle system the trees show up without the branches of the tree or the first particle system. Lmk what I can do to solve this problem or if there is any other information you need to answer.
In the modifier tab on the source object, apply the particle system modifier. This will turn the branches of the tree into individual objects. Then, select all of the branches as well as the tree trunk as the active object and join them together. This will give you one object that can then be used as the object when rendering the forest particle system.
