Forest Group Distribution on helpers issue
« on: December 16, 2021, 04:43:55 AM »
hi guys

i have a dining table setting where i want to distribute a group of dining ware on tables and i have helpers as the distribution point.  The issue is when i rotate the helper, it rotates each model individually, can this be rotated as a whole group?

Hi,

Thanks for the quesion. In the current stable version of Forest Pack, objects do rotate around their own local pivots as shown in your video. One solution therefore is to align the pivots to a common centre point.



The objects will then rotate as expected.

However, in the Forest Pack beta, we have added a new option called Keep Group Hierarchy which will treat the group as a single object.



I hope that helps,
Paul
