View Full Version : Change noise seed on each iteration of an object
12-13-2003, 12:02 PM
Hi guys. I need to create the curb of a road so i've made a curb stone and need to have 500 or so instances going down the road. BUT, i'd like to use a different seed for the modifier on each stone, so they look a little diffeent. I can do this with script if they're all different objects but surely there's a way of making them all instances 'cause they're the same object but just apply a different seed to each one. Is this possible??

This cannot be done using instances. You can use References tho to have instanced baseobjects with unique noise modifiers. You can then use maxscript to randomize their seeds:
with redraw off
for obj in selection do
m = obj.modifiers[#noise]
if m != undefined then m.seed = random 0 12345
