I have a question regarding Downsample Particles option. If I select a subset of the particles, does it select random X particles that I am asking it for, best X particles that I am asking it for, or first X particles that I am asking it for?
(my assumption is random, but just wanted to ask to clarify it).
The downsample particles job actually just takes the first X particles in the dataset without randomizing. If you wanted to randomize the particles before downsampling, you could pass them to a “Particle Sets Tool” job and set the split batch size to the number of particles you want to downsample, and activate the “Split randomize” parameter.
