Title: gizmo helper as segment
Post by: GK6439 on August 25, 2011, 04:13:57 PM
I was wondering if it was possible to use a helper (gizmo) as a segment in railclone?
atm it is not possible to select a helper as a segment?

(I created a lot of light posts with railclone and would like to replace them with a helper, maybe there is an other way?)

No, it is not possible to use helpers as segments. RailClone is a procedural geometric object, so it only can generate a geometry as result, but helpers are a different type of object.

Perhaps you would use maxscript to identify the position of each light post in the geometry, and replace it with a helper, but unfortunately this is not a trivial task.
