Flock of butterflies?

Hi I am new to Blender particles and still adapting from PFlow in 3ds max.

Is there a way to make Blender Particles take a skinned model(animated by bones) like for example an rigged 3D butterfly?

Hi @Deng_Yo,

Yes it is.

Assign the mesh that has the armature in the object panel of the particle:

Note that all the butterflies have synchronized animation ( since there are all the same ) . You may have to have a variety of animated butterflies to use in the particle system/systems.

and the Blend file :slight_smile:

Butterflies.blend (1.4 MB)

Cheers,
Dj.
