Hi all,
Is it possible to export instanced objects? Say you have an instance object generator and you have 6 different pieces of spaghetti that are being instanced to fill a bowl. I need to save out the instanced spaghetti so I can adjust it in modeler to fit inside the bowl better.

Hi, I may be wrong ... but I fear this has to be done entirely in modeler.

Lucky you that you've only 6 objects to deal with.

Perhaps Chronosculpt may be an option too. From the vids I saw you can manipulate the mesh with it in some way ... but I don't know it so it's just one more bet.

Regards.

Just found this forum post on that same topic ... a bit old ... but maybe still a working solution ...

There should be a Python script that comes with 11.6 that does this. But I don't believe it does it for animated objects.
