one copy per item
« on: May 02, 2014, 03:23:56 PM »
Hi,

is there a quick way to tell forest to scatter just one copy per item?
e.g. I have 10 objects that I want to scatter but I want just one copy for each single object in the final forest so the result is 10 copies.

thank you

Hi,

I'm afraid this one is not task for Forest Pack as it's scattering solution is based on probabilistic algorithms.

With all probability values normalized you'll not receive desired effect - because of it's randomization it'll be close but not exact, as there is Random Seed parameter influencing the result. Also the total amount of scattered objects is defined by it's Density settings not by exact number.

Anyway, by using Custom Edit mode under Tree Editor tab you can Add your models manually using Sequence. Attaching screenshot showing this option.

Can you please describe more in detail what are you trying to archive?

Kind regards,

Hi Michal and thank you for your reply,

I'd like to scatter people and trying to avoid duplicates but didn't find a solution so far.

I'm also wondering which is the fastes way to scatter people...mapped billboard with opacity channel seems not to be so flexible

thank you
