Blender 2.74 release
I have an empty that is duplicating a group. I would like to instance this empty as the object of a hair particle system (or as part of a group of object's being instanced). Specifying said empty as the Dupli Object fails to instance the group that is being duplicated by said empty as visible with the object_particles system.
The proposed workflow for instancing a group as a particle hair folicle is to use the duplicating group parameter of the particles system. This is not a sufficient implementation because:
- It fails instancing nested dupligroups of said dupligroup as visible with the dupligroup_particles system.
- It fails to facilitate the workflow of instancing random dupligroups from a set of dupligroups as provided by the Pick Random implementation. Presumably this is a byproduct of failing to instance nested dupligroups.
