Ive got 200 clip maps, all the same , a crowd animation, and to randomize the tile, I used a texture displacement in its surface...but now all of the clip maps are showing thru where the displacement has warped the image, so I need to add the displacement layer inside the clipmap setting to all 200....also Id like to tweak the AA/Pixel blending settings for the clipmaps....you cant...it sucks....basically I need to open each one and tweak them, or try to decifer the scene file in an editor....
:(

I hope 8's spreadsheet works with EVERY variable in LW!

Hi Howard,
AFAIK there is no plugin to help you.
However, you can open the scene file in an editor and do a search replace.
Try this:
Create a scene with one of your current clip maps.
Print the scene file.
Modify the clip map, save and print the scene file.
You should now spot differences. (Mey be even mark them...)
Open your 200 object scene file, do a search and replace using the differences you found out, save with a new name, see if it works.

It ain't no beauty, but it works ;)

Cheers,
Mike

I wish clipmaps were stored with the object file, or at least an option to as well as the normal way.
