Question Let's get this party started!

Yeah lets get this going,..

In Material Dynamic there is Sub-Material Rotoscoping with a Random option, that may help. As far as getting the ID's comming off the emmiter to jumble, well I dunno.

Here is a shape marker I created while looking into your question.

material frequency operator

I ended up using a material frequency operator (exactly what I needed). It assigns material IDs in the percentages you dictate. Very nice and flexible.
