It appears animation and Collision under Distribution don't play nice together (at least, that's what my animating coworkers say).
They say items have some random popping going on because they generated on one frame but not on the next.
1: Is this a thing and can it be solved ? (so we can use Collision in animation)
if it can't be solved,
2: How do I set items to custom programatically so I can use that in a maxscript to automate ?
I know I can do $.mode = 1 but then I get popups and I can't figure out how to
programmatically press the Yes button. Sometimes there's only the first, sometimes there are 2:
- Switching to Custom Edit mode will disable Area/Distribution parameter. Are you sure?
- Some items are not visible in viewport because of Camera clipping. Do you want to include them in the Custom Edit Distribution
if I can't use collision with animation then I figured setting (fixing them in place) to custom edit mode could solve this, but not when I can't process the pop-up dialogs using maxscipt.
Any help would be appreciated.
