Contact sheet?
« on: February 19, 2020, 02:02:58 AM »
I have an upcoming project where my client will need to choose between hundreds of stock assets. I'd like to generate a contact sheet of models laid up in a grid pattern and I thought there might be a way with FP Pro. Is there a way to generate only one clone per object? Say I have 100 objects and I assign create a Forest object to a rectangle spline with full distribution. I'd want to only have one of each generated and then I could adjust the density units to quickly lay out my array. Is this possible?

Thanks

Hi StudioTribe,

That is a task not for ForestPack. ForestPack scatters randomly. There is no option to scatter item only once.

Anyway, I attach You my maxscript utility to create such a contact sheet:



Hope this helps.
