View Full Version : How to determine if object is an instance?

03 March 2008, 01:36 PM
Hi all

Is there a max script function that I can evaluate to see if the obj in question is an instance of some other object (don't care what)?

Bobo has responded to this question on at least (if not more) occasions. As it would be completely pointless for me to even try and reproduce what he said, I suggest you search his responses for the same question.

Look up the Instancemgr in the maxscript help.

RustyKnight: I had seen Bobo's answer before posting and thought it was a little ott for what I needed.

Soulburn: I can evaluate InstanceMgr.CanMakeObjectsUnique #(obj) and if it returns true then I know its an instance and handle accordingly. Perfect.

Thanks guys
