Easyer usebility when creating an RC object.
« on: November 25, 2015, 09:59:57 PM »
Im working with RC in nearly every project now.
And it drives me crasy how many actions and clicks to perform till i got the librarybrowser open.

It would we so much easyer if

- while having the spline already selected
- click on a "RC" button in a toolbar
- the librarybrowser opens
- after choosing a preset, the spline selected before is used to build the RailClone
- DONE :)

You can easy create a RailClone_Pro() object. But there seems to be no way to open the librarybrowser via maxscript ?

Hi,

Check out the attached script for a demo of how to open the Library Browser using maxscript. Using it you should be able to apply a Library style to a selected spline in just a few clicks:



To use:

  • Select a spline
  • Click Pick Library
  • Select the style from the library and import
  • Click Apply to Spline

If no spline was selected it'll create a RC object and open the library browser, but the option to apply to spline will not be available.

Obviously this will only work for styles that require a single spline input - for more complex styles with multiple inputs you may find it's easier to just use the first button and apply the spline from the Base Objects rollout.

I hope that helps, please let me know if you have any questions.

Many thanks!

Paul
