UVW mapping
« on: November 20, 2014, 02:55:09 PM »
Hi i would like an generator parameter to apply uvw on whole RC :
Or can I use max modifier without breaking instancing?

Unfortunately it's not possible to generate UVW coordinates without breaking instancing. The same applies both in RailClone or using Max modifier.
We can only modify existing UVW values (move, rotate, scale), and only with V-Ray.

ok too bad,
Also similar, can we export uvw parameters ?
that would save me in some cases...

By now we have included in "Export Attributes" only those values cannot be obtained by other methods (as the segment's size).

So in this case, the idea is to export UVW parameters, connect to a Numeric/Constant node and reuse it for other inputs, as shown in the image.
But i just realized mapping values are not exportable. We'll change that and check all other parameters.

I don't understand 2 things from your post:
1. How did you export "X Mapping Size" from box01 ?
2. Why did you write that you realized that mapping values are not exportable... ? ...since you captured a screenshot, that they are?

I'm sorry to have confused you. In the current beta Mapping size is not exportable.
That screenshot was taken from my development version, once modified the code to make Mapping exportable. I included it only as sample of how it should work.
