Particle System scale is not applied to the Shape Module of sub emitter systems in the "Local" and "Hierarchy" Modes




Priority: 4Not yet prioritized for a release


Severity: 3Secondary functionality broken

How to reproduce:
1. Open the attached project
2. Open ShapeModuleScale scene
3. Select particles in the hierarchy so they start simulating

Expected result: The system on the left contains a sub emitter with the same values as the system on the right, and should spawn particles in the same shape, a stretched upside down hemisphere.
Actual result: Instead, the particles themselves are stretched, but the shape they are emitted from is an unscaled hemisphere.

Reproducible: 5.3.6p8, 5.4.2f2, 5.5.0b10, 5.6.0a1

Note: If Scaling Mode of Particle System, which is a Sub Emitter, is set to Shape, issue disappears.
