Having a problem where a second particle emitter group which is a modified duplicate doesn’t align with the first group. Was wondering if there’s a way to get it to do that.
As you can see, the bulb emission objects are where I want them, but a second group for the sockets doesn’t line up. Same seeds, same values. Not sure what gives? And even if I could get them to match somehow, I’d like the bulb rotation on the long axis to be slightly randomized while still keeping the socket in-line with the cord.
Part of this setup is also fudging around to get array duplicates on a curve, but not have the curve distortion on the thing duplicated. (At least for things other than the cord profile) The fact there can be some slight randomization is a nice touch too. The bulbs work as expected, but the problem behavior is with the second set of particles for the sockets. I’m expecting the same behavior from the next particle group (given the settings), but apparently that’s not the case.
