    Excellent, thanks! I looked all over for that option.
  2. Bone hierarchy, basic question about assigning hierarchy

    Is there a way to have an object use bones of another object? There used to be a button somewhere that simply allowed "use bones from" so you could select another bone hierarchy already in the scene...
  3. Where is best node editor documentation?

    The LW v. 11 manual has piecemeal description of nodes. Is there a complete list with descriptions anywhere? I've poured through the forums and found similar requests. Any suggestions much...

    Yes, 10 was buggy for me, too, but version 11.6 was not. 2015 looks to be a smooth transition from 11.6 so if you do upgrade you probably won't notice bugs.

    Poll: Is there a list of specific feature upgrades?

    Is there a list of specific feature upgrades? (I looked on the site but don't see anything.) I have 11.6.3 and wonder about the benefit of upgrade hassle.
  6. Wonderful. Thank you.

    Wonderful. Thank you.
  7. Where does one find the node "Set Max Height"? ...

    Where does one find the node "Set Max Height"? (in XswampyX screen capture). I've looked through the node list several times and don't see it anywhere... Thanks.
  8. Thank you for your suggestions.

    Thank you for your suggestions.
  9. Thanks for the node instruction XswampyX. I...

    Thanks for the node instruction XswampyX. I would like to give each box it's own surface, but there are too many (2,000 boxes and 200 surface textures required).
    I've used a UV map, but I think...
  10. I don't see a quantize node. Is there a...

    I don't see a quantize node. Is there a quantize node that can be used to add a number of keys to a gradient? None of the numeric ones work. Thanks.
  11. I tried the weight map as a trio, and...

    I tried the weight map as a trio, and individually and got the same result. Also tried your suggestion of Y distance to object and that didn't work, either.
    The top of the boxes are then correct,...

    [QUOTE=Sensei;1367972]Make weight map with 100% on top four points, and 0% on bottom four points (or reverse). Then use weight map instead of Y axis as input to gradient.

  13. Gradient question, stepped gradient question

    I'd like to assign color to boxes based on their height. "Y-distance to pivot point" almost works, but it assigns all of the colors to the sides. Is there a way to color the entire box based on...
  14. Thanks all.

    Thanks all.
  15. Can displacement be controlled by a single color channel?

    Can displacement be controlled by a single color channel? What would the node set-up be? I watched an old tutorial by W. Vaughan that shows an array of pins whose displacement is controlled by an...
  16. You'd probably have to send the object to Layout,...

    You'd probably have to send the object to Layout, then make an image sequence or movie (rotating your object, zooming in, etc.). Then convert that to a Quicktime movie to display on your tablet.

    Thanks for the scene! Good random motions are possible.
  18. Yes, wind settings work. Thanks.

    Yes, wind settings work. Thanks.
  19. Can emitters make particles fly in random looping paths?

    Is there a way to randomize the paths of particles from an emitter so that a single particle will cross its own path, and weave in and out, like a pretzel, or like insects in a small swarm? The...

    Sounds like you want to use the RAYCAST node. Page 36 of the LW 11.6 manual addendum. I haven't used it , but recently read it.

    I will try the spray points as you suggest. I had previously used the 3rd-party plugin HDInstance so I'm getting used to a slightly different approach.
