Hi all,
I am organizing my city model and trying to use RC to scatter my randomize city,
I export a single house model into a vrayproxy with multi-sub object material
if i do not apply any materials to the RC object the RC shows to be the object color...
but when i try to use RC to scatter the material ID's could not be read when i want the correct building to correspond to the correct material
please refer to the images.
please help and thanks for the advice

Hi,

Currently, the RailClone object doesn't automatically inherit any of materials used by its Segments and the user is responsible of creating a material and applying it to the RailClone object. In case of having different materials applied to the source geometry, you'll need to create your own multi-sub material, assigning a different material ID to each element and applying it to the whole RailClone object. Please feel free to check more detailed information and examples in the "4 - How to Control Material IDs" chapter of our "Next Steps with RailClone" guide.

As mentioned in this related post on our forum: "I would suggest you to check the "Why do segments in RailClone ignore my Materials" article in our Knowledge Base (a recommendable way to create the Multi/Sub-Object material is to Attach all objects into a single mesh / Detach them)."

Hope that helps.

Best regards,
