Sequence of Generators & Marker
« on: December 13, 2020, 05:35:33 AM »
sorry for stalking you again :(
here is some problem:
i got two generators as sequence of default segments, i would like to separate them by marker and assign it to part of spline ( e.g. ID=2 )
is it even possible?
problem cause limits, i know RC consider whole spline
if i turn them off works fine even if structure isn't perfect

Thank you very much,
But how to limit sequence to deired matID?

I`m not sure I understand.
Do you need an additional limit for the spline IDs?

Just enable mat id limit in main generator.

This will change the start position of the marker.
Strange, I tried with selector Selector, Compose+null for termination, Conditional, nothing works as should.

i know it could be RC limitation :(

You could do a workaround with conditionals.

so if i would extract position of marker on spline i could use it as conditional's spline position am I right?

Yes.
I don`t know why the Conditional Length of the Full spline is not working. Possible bug again.
When the marker is connected it will automatically make a Section on the spline so you probably can calculate the marker position in Percentage.
I guess something like XSectionLength/XSplineLength*100. (connect this to Conditional node). Although I`m not sure how this will affect Sequence change. It is possible that some of the Sequence segments `crossover` the Marker Cone Segment. Then you just make the threshold by multiply with a value around 100. +/-80/90...
I can test it when I get my hands back on the computer.
