View Full Version : Apply Dynamics to several objects

02-07-2007, 07:02 PM

I have imported a scene that contents many objects to apply a Hard fx to them in lightwave.

so is there any way to apply dynamics like hard fx to many objects in one time
at once. :help:

thanks in advance :D

No there isn't. The best you can do is apply hardFX to one object with the settings you like, then closing LW and opening you're scene in a text editor. Then figure out how the hard FX object is different and copy those hard FX differences to all the objects in the text of the scene file.

sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

If objectintercollision (other than very simple by sphere or box-approximation) is not important you can put all of your objects in one layer in modeler and use 'object>pieces' option in HardFX.

(For instance, collapsing brick wall: model a brick, copypaste it into a wall of bricks in modeler (all in one layer), run HardFX with 'object>pieces' setting and the object will be treated as if made out of many individual bricks. I'm rendering at the moment so I can't check to see what the exact self-collision options are but I think you don't have too many options there)
