I'm trying to understand effects tool but I'm hitting a wall left and right. I'm trying to edit http://docs.itoosoft.com/display/FORESTPACK/Bend+by+Object
so that I can take multiple objects... normally I would start with something like
a = [object,object1,object2]
Or a better way to select multiple objects at 1 maybe something like:
a = selection as array
then I would run the loop to do something like:
for obj in a:
do stuff xxx
But loops don't work ? I mean I tried python/maxscript/ we don't have loops ?
How can I add multiple objects to forest pack pro system and use them to control rotation of instances within custom area of object. The Bend by object kinda does it but it changes rotation to face towards the object instead of mirroring the rotation but I think that's rather easy fix just needs some math :- )
I'm trying to create something similar to Xgen in maya where we can spawn X amount of objects and then using them we can control scale/rotation of instances surrounding it...
Right now it looks like I will have to implement 7 lines of code per object + 4 control parameters... meaning that if I want to add 10 objects I need 70 lines of code + 40 parameters... not very effective. :- (
