Library suggestion
« on: December 05, 2017, 11:35:30 AM »
Hi the dream team!

I'm placing a ton's of props in library from scenes which contain proxys or meshes.
BUT, as you mention it, FPP work better with lonely files as one mesh = one file.
Here my suggestion :
Does The xml create by the import object option could be used to... import really each objet to the library folder?
It should be clearly cool to optimise our library by that way.
And maybe a rename tool to move each one with a good name...

I don't know if i explain that as well you could understand my mind?
La vie est une aventure dangereuse d'où personne n'est jamais sortie vivant.

I'm sorry, but i don't understand well your suggestion.

Anyway, there is not benefit splitting the library objects in several max scenes (did you read that in our documentation ?)
You can use an unique Max scene, and define in the XML what object to use for each library item. Performance will be identical.

Also the library browser lets you to import multiple objects from a scene, creating multiple library items in a single step (from right click->Import Objects).
