Emitting particles from instances


Suppose you want to emit particles from the instances in a point cloud. For example, suppose you have a point cloud of instances of a BigFish model, and you want to emit little fish from each BigFish instance.

One simple approach is to set up a point cloud on your master BigFish instance, and do the emitting there.
