Distribution mode image - scaling
« on: May 24, 2024, 01:13:52 PM »
Probably obvious but when I use image mode with any of those bitmaps (random bands for instance) how do I control it's UVW or size? It doesn't pick up the objects UVW. Also what's the map then for?
Thx!

Hi,

It can be easily adjusted by tweaking Distribution > Density values. As mentioned in our online documentation, it "... lets the user choose the scale of the distribution map in the scene. The map is applied in a manner similar to the way texture maps are applied in Max. The image is scaled according to the defined size, and tiled in all directions."

I hope that helps.

Best regards,

Always thought that was only the density of the objects, now I see the behavior. Thanks :)
