As per this guideline - it says:
This feature is available only in V-Ray, when Display->Use Instancing Engine is enabled. See Best Rendering Practices for more information about the rendering modes.
Can someone clarify - it only work in vray when instancing is enabled, or it only works in vray at all? - ie it wont work with mental ray?
I want to do the thing in that tutorial - have some mapping that follows along the spline but doesn't stop with each segment.
As an addendum - even with this mapping switched off, I can't seem ti apply my own mapping UV modifier to the railcone object.
I still get tiling based on the segment object's mapping - but at render time, not in the viewport.
Need to turn off instancing engine.
Jesus Christ - anyone fancy giving me a Vray licence?
