Railclone Segment Material on XReferenced Assets
« on: January 05, 2023, 03:07:28 PM »
Hi,
Is it true that RailClone can't use Segement Materials when using objects imported as Xref Objects?
The models work fine in it self, - all materials are visible - but when used inside RC, they are omitted.

Check if the Use Instancing Engine is set to on.

That's it. 'Use Segment Material' should work with XRefs (at least it works in our tests), but this feature is only available with the instancing engine.
When instancing is not used, RailClone works as a standard mesh, limited to a single material (as other Max objects).

If it doesn't work, please tell us your render engine.
