I created a branch with needles on it. I used Particles to create needles. Currently my branch looks like this:
All the needles facing in the direction of a normals.
I want to make needles like this:
So they face the direction the branch is facing.
I have tryed changing the Velocity/Rotation setting in the particle settings, but i have not been able to get the result i want.
This is the "best" result i could get by playing with "Tangent" setting in the "Velocity" menu.
As you can see the result is total mess. Needles on tope of a mesh are facing the right direction, but needles on the bottom facing the complete opposite direction.
Please share you thoughts. Is it possible to do what i want at all using the hair system?
