Proxy Cache loses segment material
« on: July 19, 2022, 11:16:29 AM »
Hi,

We've noticed an issue when using the RC Proxy cache in that the RC Object renders as the wire colour if no material is assigned.
This wouldn't be a problem for architectural features where a multi/sub material is assigned but causes problems when using RC for scattering objects like books/cars along a spline.

Ideally the segment materials would be baked into the RC Proxy cache.

Thanks

Hi,
Unfortunately, this is a limitation of using External Proxy mode which bakes all the geometry into an external file. Since this is a proprietary file format (it's not a max file), it doesn't currently include materials or non-geometric models. If you need to use segment-by material then at present Embedded mode is the way to go.

Cheers,
Paul
