I just tried to assign a vertex group to a particle emitter for hair (as in: the hair is only supposed to grow on the eyebrows, say). I followed a video tutorial on this, where it was accomplished by entering the name of the group in a textfield called “VertGroup” (or similar) under “emit from” in the particle system settings.
Strangely, though, I can´t find the field to put in the name of the group. I only can choose to “emit from” faces or vertices, but I can´t enter a vertex group there.
I am running 2.49, and if I compare my interface with the tutorial, it really does look different there. Has the function moved somewhere else? Or has it been completely replaced? Or am I doing something wrong? I´m fairly new to Blender, maybe I just don´t get it…
Thanks for your suggestions!
