[Q] Distribution, Rotation, Scale, Translation

Postby ironplasma » Fri Nov 14, 2014 7:42 pm

How about the possibility to adjust the distribution (then why not rotation, scale and translation) independently for each object?

I tried to give it multiple separate surfaces (only two) but it doesn't seem to be willing to scatter on both. Same for two different areas on one surface. I see that you put a name field so you probably had in mind to allow more "setup" for multiple surfaces, right? :)

What exactly is the difference between distance and border density for the falloff?

Otherwise, I didn't try Vray yet but so far so good!

Hi Brice,

It should be able to scatter on multiple surfaces, like this:

Are you not getting that?

You can also add any number of Skatter groups to one surface, but if you give them the same settings, they'll be identical. This is done to have predictable results over time, the distribution is always the same with a given set of settings on one surface.
I'll add a seed parameter, so you can get different results with the same settings.

The name is necessary to be able to identify the Skatter groups in the "render list".

As for the area falloff:
