View Full Version : Per Object Settings on Instnaces - Multi Select Adjust Please

02-06-2013, 09:09 AM
So we have some new things in the Instancing plugin/feature. We can now set each individual object with it's own properties. Cool. I'm sure I'll find a use.

However I can't add all my instances into my scene set them up on an instancer and then MULTI-SELECT all of them and set there properties. Like Edge Aligned, Scale etc.

The UI allows multi select but the adjustment doesn't happen. This happens quite a few places in LW these days. Lot's left over from a long time ago.

Just wish there was multi adjust for all things LW! :thumbsup:

Yep, LOT's of multi-select, multi-edit-follow niggles, like you can change the intensity of multiple selected lights, but not their type... boo hiss.

At now you can change multiple instances size, offset etc by adjusting main reference objects just in layout like other standard objects - I like this new way of working.

But I have two different BIG problems. When I have 80 people or 15 plants in the instance panel slots I must clicking about three minutes to change its preview parameters ( box, wireframe ), colors or enable-disable states - multiselections doesn't work. The next problem is to disabling null-instances. I'm scared when I must placing instances via nulls because you can select them later in Scene Editor, but can't disable multiselected instance generators from objects properties panel or edit their parameters globally. There must be possibility to global instance editing like surface editor can for multiselected objects.
