VRay Decal segment
« on: November 28, 2023, 10:50:13 AM »
Hi all,

I've just done a test to see if I can get Railclone to array the Vray decal as a segment (it can) but it doesn't operate as the Vray decal any more, it merely operates as box geometry.

Ideally I'd like to use Vray decal scattered along the edges of roads etc using Railclone, for debris and such.

Does anyone have any idea if/when this might be implemented?

Kind regards,
Chris

Hi,

No, it's not possible. V-Ray doesn't allow to instantiate decal objects.

Same limitation applies to other tools (VRayInstancer, ChaosScatter, etc.).
If at some time V-Ray supports instancing for decals, it would work automatically for RailClone as well.

The only way is to convert RailClone to standalone objects, using RailClone Tools.
