Feature Requests for Forest Tools
« on: July 14, 2014, 05:45:04 PM »
I have some feature requests for the Forest Tools Utility:

1) Correct Pivot. I'd like instanced geometry created with the Instantiate function to keep a pivot relative to mesh identical to the original node. At the moment, when you run Instantiate, the pivot is usually offset far from the instantiated node.

2) Add checkbox to keep User Defined Data. So if the instanced geometry has User Properties, those properties will be applied to the instantiated geometry.

Thanks for your suggestions.
We are currently working on Forest Tools, so we'll take a look to these changes. I think there should not be problems to implement both.

Hi, regarding point 1 and according to my tests, the pivot is aligned correctly with the instanced object... does it work different in your case ?

Sorry I did not answer sooner.

In my case, I have problems if the original objects have offset object transforms. The problem is that some of objects I need to use are proxies of other objects... and they are often transformed but cannot safely have their transforms reset.
