Could the Style Editor have a maximize button? Suitable for multiple monitors. Thanks

How about that for service?  :)



It'll be available in the next beta release.

Thanks again for the suggestion,

It's a shame that you just don't have the time to dedicate to producing a tutorial once a week for both Railclone and Forest Pack Pro.. Have learnt a lot from the many you have produced over the years. Have watched them all, some several times, but as you can imagine, especially with Railclone, there is still so much a person can learn.. What makes it even more difficult is the current situation, which seems to go up and down recently.. One thing I would love to see is a really long series, taking a user from basics all the way through every feature of the plugins, based around a single project, perhaps one for Railclone and another for Forest pack, but again thinking of the immense amount of time that would take, sadly I doubt there will ever be such a series.. Anyway, can't wait to see this 3 hour epic, any ideas of when it might be released hahaha.. Keep the great work, I have found both plugins immensely useful in my every day work and finally to all the folks at iToo Software, a very Merry Christmas and maybe, just maybe a very Happy New year.

Hi, you might find this tutorial handy which contains both options: separate x and y spline, or footprint spline and height parameter.

I hope that helps,

another suggestion would be to add a switch into the rail-clone lister for "switching auto update"
I realized even if the rail-clone object ist disabled, editing the source segments in max, feel sluggish when they are connected to an auto-updating rail-clone object.

Not sure if that is just in the recent rail-clone version, or was behaving like that before.

I suggest to use Display->Proxy Cache->Embedded, which is more efficient.
It saves the state of the RC object with the scene, and it's not necessary to rebuild it anymore, except if you want to make some change.

It can be changed easily from the Lister (latest column).
