So I’m trying to make particles form a word as stated in this thread: http://blenderartists.org/forum/showthread.php?t=76776
…but using the new particle system found here:
You have to create a grid with for example 8x8x8 vertices as one object and a box as a second object - the particle. Parent the grid to the box, select the grid and hit Object/Object buttons/Anim settings/Dupliverts
Then enable Object/Physics/Particles/Unborn and there you go.
I tried that to no avail
For some reason it renders the cubes as normal particles with a halo material (the cubes material is not a halo).
Does anyone know why this is?
