I am using 2.68, I am trying to create a field of grass scene, I have modeled the grass, textured etc. I am applying weight paint to a plane. When I apply the Hair/group particle all the grass that I modeled orient flat along the y or x.
I have tried to adjust the rotation with various setting, I can get the grass to stand up correctly, but what happens is the blades of grass end up being elevated off the plane.
When I modeled the grass blades I added a plane in OBJ rotated to camera and scaled, then in edit I elevated so the bottom of the blade is at Z/0
I have tried adjusting every setting in the particle menu to no avail.
any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
