Element 3D Sphere replicator tutorial

In this tutorial we look at the Sphere replicator shape option in Element 3D.  The way this works is that the replicator itself is a sphere and depending on the number of instances of a particle you have in a scene, the more filled out the sphere will be.

Here are the different sections covered in this tutorial:

Using the sphere replicator

Adjusting the sphere properties

Adding rotations to particles

Using the particle look random rotation
