question for Steffen about SimpleScatter plugin

Recommended Posts

Hi Steffen,

 

First let me thank you for your awesome collection of plugins!

 

I started playing with SimpleScatter for V13. I made a very basic model of a hill by deforming a grid in magnet mode, brought it into the Choreography and deleted the ground. Then I used SimpleScatter on the hill, selected a very simple tree model, and set it to 30 copies. It resulted in only 6 trees but four of them are floating above the hill model. I've tried this a few more times but no luck.

 

Again, thanks for the great plugins you give to the A:M community. :) If you do have some time to look at this, I've attached the sample file I used.

Are you starting the plugin from the frontview (Numpad-2) ?

Steffen,

 

I just tried it from the Front View and it works perfectly! So now I feel like a dummy because I went back to your webpage and sure enough, it says:

 

"This plugin works only correct, if you start them from the frontview (Alt-2)"

 

:P I totally missed that, but thanks for the quick reply! Using this is going to be fun, seems like the perfect way to quickly add random foliage to a landscape.

Hi,

 

To show how it's working, here's a picture of all 30 trees nicely placed on the hill. Now don't hold me to the quality of those, er, trees (cough, cough) or even of that.. hill. :lol: This was just proof of concept. Nicer models come later.
