Clone Lights ?
« on: April 08, 2011, 02:07:41 AM »
Hi there,

I using your Clone tool every day and it's just amasing, thanks for creating that tool!

I was wondering if there was a way to use it on lights ?
I saw in another post that it could only work on meshes, but is that still the case ?
Is there another plugin from you gays that make that work ? RailClone may be ?

Thanks

Stan

Clone only works with geometrical objects, there is not support for lights or other special objects. I don't know is there is some plugin that could make it in the same way that clone works. RailClone also has the same limitation.

Hey guys,

Is there any news about this,
is it still not possible to scatter lights?
It's really annoying to be able to scatter light geometry but have to place the lights (ie : ies lights) manually after, on top of the already scattered geometry...

Regards

Stan

No, sorry. This feature is not available yet, but it is a priority in the RailClone wishlist.

I'm afraid not. We did some attempts, but could not resolve it efficiently.

Hello,
I'm tying to find a solution to use lights with Railclone. Have you any solution to this problem ?

I would recommend ForestPack script mentioned above.
You can create ForestPack object from RailClone Object too if that is more suitable for You.

Thank you. It's working but it's a pitty that there is no easier and faster way.
