Forest pack - Instance Lights
« on: November 29, 2019, 11:08:20 AM »
Hi.

Can you tell me where this script is?

It's strange for iToo to show something and not make it available..... unless I'm missing something ;)

Thanks

Hi,

I am trying to reopen an old thread but had no option

I was trying to distribute the lights along the pavement using the script "FP_lights_instancer.ms", but failed in doing so.

I am using a Vray IES lights so after the instancing and distribution happens all the target merge to one single point which is not correct

I am attaching the 3dsmax file (3dsmax 2017, Vray next 3.2, FPP 6.3.0)

Hope someone helps me asap as i am on a strict deadline

Thanks in advance for anyone who helps

Amit

Make sure Your lights are not targeted before You instance

Hi Rokas,

Thanks for the reply, i unticked the target option and it worked but all the lights instanced upside down so i had to rotate them in the right direction

Also i think the limitation of the script is that if you change the distribution distance then the instance light doesn't change we have to redo the distribution all over again

Also is it possible to group the geometry and the light and distribute it because it did not work for me, is it possible via railclone because that also did not work either, might be there is a different method or so.

Thanks again Rokas for the help.

Sorry. Yes You listed all the limitations. There is no better way to do it, yet.

Hope to get a script or an effect or might be a RC macro in future to make things easier.

Thanks Rokas once again.

You guys are doing really great and hope all the family members of all the Itoo group are safe and sound.

Take care guys.
