Geom Instancing emitter?

Hi,

I'm making an asteroid field so I modeled a few asteroids. Now I need to instance them with an emitter, but I can't seem to find any docs about how to do that. Can anyone recommend a good tutorial on this? Also, is it possible to have the emitter randowmly choose from a list of objects rather than have to make multiple emitters?

Thanks,
-dann

hehe... he's using the EXACT same thing m8user added image

The only difference is that the Boris tut also explains a random rotation expression, and a collision event expression.

FYI: lots of expressions can be found here as well:

Good find, so it is up to you. Same technique, different execution.

Have fun, and lets see it when you are done ok?
