Hi. I am trying to setup a tank tread made of two types of pieces. The one piece distribution setup is pretty easy now with the instanced spline technique, but i am in trouble with this one.
Anyone?

I mean i can make a "normal" (only one piece) tread, but i dont known how to instance two different pieces consecutive in a spline (not in a random fashion)

You can do that with weightmaps and two different instancers. There is also a demo scene in the content about setting up a chain made out of 2 parts.

Thank you Every4thPixel.
I was thinking about a even-odd node setup plugged in weight parameter of the instancer, but it is way too much complex to do, sure.
I will try.
