Hello everybody,
I have one urgent question.
Is it possible to rotate or mirror the whole new segment created by compose operator about a new pivot? I found the parts of the composed segment was rotating about their independent pivots if I link the compose node to new transform node or mirror node ?
Is there any workaround that keep the style chart as simple as possible ? We were not doing some riging in Railclone. We were just arranging some seats in Railclone.

I am looking for your answer.
Best wishes.

Hi. No, Compose operator just chain together a set of consecutive segments, but cannot handle them as an unique segment with a common pivot.
This possibility is in our wishlist, but it's a bit tricky to implement, because the way that RC handles internally the instances.

You can find a similar case with some tricks here. I hope that helps

I've read this before post this topic. But this topic was summited 2 years ago. However, He was riging for animation but I just want this feature in modeling. I wish this problem will be solved in the future update.
