  1. Hi! Great tips. I love everything. However, I am facing an issue. My every Pterosaur in the flock is having exactly same (or synchronized) wings movement which is making it quite fake. How do I randomize the wings movement of each Pterosaur?

    1. Thank you for your feedback! I’m so glad you liked our video!
      I’ve sent this comment to our team who will be able to reach out and help with the movement issue.
      Hopefully we will get this resolve and get your Pterosaurs flying.

      Thank you,
