controlling randomization
« on: May 29, 2018, 06:03:32 PM »
Is there a max file for this quick tutorial, https://www.itoosoft.com/tensecondstips/controlling-randomisation?back=page%3D2%26tag%3Drc (possibly for max 2012 or 2015?)

I'm looking to create a wall of varying sized blocks, with varying height and width. But seem to be stuck per usual when I do anything outside of a simple linear sweep.

thanks

Bingo! thank you Rokas -

I further modified it to also randomize the height. Now if I start to make varying custom pieces to load into this array. What's the best way to randomize those pieces so they aren't appearing in sequence? Is there a way to randomize the order of the sequence of objects?

Use not "Sequence", but "Randomize" node
