Optimize the geometry of a Railclone object
« on: October 25, 2019, 09:03:26 AM »
Hello,

I would like to know if there is a procedure to optimize the geometry of a "Railclone" object in the manner of a "sweep" (3dsMax), confers image.

Thanks in advance

Hi, there is not any option in RailClone for that, but you can apply an Optimize modifier to the RC object.

Please note that Modifiers disable the instancing engine. The RailClone object will be handled at render as a whole mesh.

I would like to add that You as a style creator have full control and responsibility for any optimizations needed.
In this situation style can be driven by different spline material IDs and select denser segmented mesh for curved part (material ID =2 ) and less segmented geometry on straight segments (material ID = 1)
