  • $\begingroup$ Hi and welcome :) Please use Blend-Exchange for uploading blend files, also please be specific as to what you have done to fix your problem, and clearly describe it for other users. Images of particle settings, the entire viewport, ect, are helpful. :) thanks $\endgroup$ – Timaroberts Oct 10 '20 at 17:28
  • $\begingroup$ @Timaroberts thank you so much....i will edit and put everything in detail in my question $\endgroup$ – Rohith Eyyani Oct 11 '20 at 4:39
  • $\begingroup$ Used your blend file. In my Blender 2.90.0 everything looks fine. All thair is emitted from the cube with the subsurf modifier. Maybe an addon messes up something? $\endgroup$ – Blunder Oct 18 '20 at 15:30

Just had the same problem. I've joined 2 objects (one with a modifier) and separated the meshes again into two objects. This copied a Bevel modifier on the object. The modifier caused the particle origin problem.

Either remove the modifier or tick the checkbox Use Modifier Stack in EmissionSourceEmit from. This solved the issue and the particles are emitted from faces again.

  • $\begingroup$ thanx for the reply mate but im having this error in every single blend file.....So im probably gonna reinstall blender and hopefully that does it $\endgroup$ – Rohith Eyyani Oct 19 '20 at 20:12
  • $\begingroup$ reinstalled blender its still doing the same thing....btw the hair is visible in the correct spot in wireframe mode and even in a render but not in solid mode $\endgroup$ – Rohith Eyyani Oct 19 '20 at 20:22
  • $\begingroup$ @RohithEyyani do you have addons installed that could cause this problem? Blender's preferences and addons are stored in the user directory and might be not affected by a re-install of Blender. $\endgroup$ – Blunder Oct 20 '20 at 0:46
  • $\begingroup$ its solved now it was cuz of some addon .....hair tool or hairTG...now that ive disabled it its fine....its working now.....thanx mate for the help $\endgroup$ – Rohith Eyyani Oct 20 '20 at 3:37
  • $\begingroup$ @RohithEyyani Happy to here you solve it, but ...Why did you marked the answer as solution for you, when your issue was an addon? $\endgroup$ – vklidu Oct 20 '20 at 6:41
