UVW bug
« on: September 10, 2015, 01:41:57 PM »
Hi guys,

just getting to know Railclone but i think i might have found a bug concerning the UVW mapping.
It occurs when i use a clipping area combined with the slice option.
See attachements for further clairification.

Thanks

Hi,

Generally, it's not commendable to use proxies inside of the RailClone object - as for example Slicing or Bending operations can't be performed correctly on those Segments.

Therefore I would highly suggest you to use meshes instead of proxies, as that'll avoid similar issues and actually there is no benefit to use them as internally all RailClone objects are converted to native V-Ray's instances.

Attaching screenshot showing this RC object using Editable Poly object "Base_Planks_00" instead of previous V-Ray Proxy "VRayProxy008 ...".

Hope that helps.

Best regards,

Ghouse

Hi Michal,

Tnx for the answer again.
I learned some things again and it actually saves me a step in my workflow.
No more Vray proxy conversion it is!
