RC Clipping Area, Offset
« on: March 20, 2017, 10:35:58 AM »
Hey guys, when using clipping area with RailClone, how do I "move" all the segments so that they align to a certain something. I always move my segments but I don't think that's the proper way.

Hi,

The recommendable way would be to set the Geometry - X Size & Y Size to overlap the area, align your RC object as needed (move its transforms) and use the Clipping Area to remove unnecessary parts of the object. Hope that helps.

Best regards,

I see what you mean, and here I was thinking there would be a less cumbersome way.

@Itoo, there should be an option that you can move the whole railclone indepedent from the clipping area so you could align more easily.

Hi, you also can offset all segments using the Clipping->Expand parameter.
Actually it's not possible to control X/Y size separately, but we have plans to include this possibility.
