    I will implement scattering over displacement geomgetry.

      It should work.

        You have to connect your collision node.

          if I can suggest.
          - Adding a on/off checkbox on the scatter node and on each node available or a lookthroug or bypass statut.
          - adding the possibility to paint over the surface directly like the Soulburnscript objet painter (http://www.neilblevins.com/art_asset...for_3dsmax.htm)
          - add a little help or description of the node
          - possibility to copy/paste the selected node or shift or ctrl or alt drag it to duplicate it
          - adding a merge node to merge multiple object node to branch in one after if the list is not possible
          - dont know if its possible, the possibility to select multiple nodes and have them in the right panel like nuke or fusion with a possibility to show a limit of 1 to x node in the right panel
          - add a statut bar to see when fscatter is cooking the node.
          - possibility to select from object/surface node the source used in the node
          - possibility to show in the viewport the generator node selected in overlay
          - possibility in the generator to choose the count preview of display as box mesh
          - maybe add a scatter list like light lister
          - test with heavy three in proxy, 1000 instance, the rt is really fast, it update instantly when i put a value but, i have a delay for the scatter editor to be usable and the viewport.
          - some crash happen with black viewport try to refresh the cooking
          I will check what I can do.
          "- possibility to copy/paste the selected node or shift or ctrl or alt drag it to duplicate it" - Node coping is implemented, I will release it a bit later.
          "- adding the possibility to paint over the surface directly like the Soulburnscript objet painter" - this is a scatter, not a painter.
          "- adding a merge node to merge multiple object node to branch in one after if the list is not possible" - You can connect several nodes to a single one for merging.

          "- possibility to select from object/surface node the source used in the node
          - possibility to show in the viewport the generator node selected in overlay
          - possibility in the generator to choose the count preview of display as box mesh"
          - I didn't get what it means

            Sorry i try to explain what i mean better.
            + Selecting the object source inside the node. If we want to edit the geometry , adding a button to select it. Its a function that's also miss in geopattern. Like this we don't have to find the source in the layer panel or try to find it if we have a big quantity of mesh used for scattering. Select source button.Z shortcut. Boom it's here. I can adjust my mesh.
            + This one is for a visual understanding of what we are doing.
            When we select a geometry node. We don't see it in the viewport. If it possible to show in the viewport the bounding box like if they were selected.
            + The scatter object don't seems to affect viewport performance but for those who don't have a good configuration. Having the possibility in the generator node too reduce the number of bounding box display in the viewport not in the render.
            + For the painting I understand. Maybe a node to masking or vertex paint used as a distributor or a decimation better and more flexible than a texture map.

              + node Uvw by object or by surface

                + possibility to branch a node between two existing node without having to debranch them like that we don't have to pause the RT or if the RT running the whole system don't disappear.
                + Add multiples selected node to be branch with one single clic and drag. Ex multiples generator selected can be branch once at a time to the next node.
                + Allow multiple output branching. Ex. Rotation if I take only this one could be only branch in output one time. If I want to use it in another scale we can't.
                + Add zoom tool to the schematic view.
                + Don't know if the processes is intel/ amd ,open CL, cuda dependant or multithreading but it seems the performance of the node graph view are influenced. with the same scene on two a different configuration the performance are really different.
                + Maybe a tool to determine the limit of generator that could be create before crashing or prevent the system to crash. 2x 3090 plus 64gb of vram and I already crash the system several times when reaching 10M generator.

                  I think the scattering should be completed with a particle generator or a painting particle point node distribution. And after those particles could be used by the generator. The particle generator node could be branch after by a decimation node where we can paint where we want them. Much precise than a texture or a dirt, distance map.

                    Just some test. I saw that you already update some of the fonctions that miss. Great job.
