Using Chaos Scatter with Chaos Cosmos
Remember that you can use Scatter with Cosmos assets to:
- Load Scatter presets which are included in Cosmos (either import them into the scene, which will create a whole new Scatter; or select an object and then import a preset - this will treat the selected object as the distribute-on object).
- Import any Cosmos model into your scene and manually scatter it.
See the Cosmos part of this article for detailed instructions.
