something strange append.. strange for me.. I had to use two different string to activate the powergons process in layout:

SelectByName albero:albero\rClone 1\rPosition \c\rRotation \n\rParentItem \i\rCreateKey 0

and

SelectByName albero:albero\rClone 1\rPosition \c\rRotation \n\rParentItem \i\rCreateKey 1

Take a look at this videotutorial. Shows how you can use particles to do crowd animation. It will of corse work with non-animated objects as well (don't make the particles move).

Happy digital's HD_instance probably sounds more like it.

That's your solution - no doubt about it. How can I be so certain? - I've done a forest lined road - about four kilometers long - literally tens of thousands of trees, all with between 20 and 60K leaves.

HD Instance - THE best plugin for LW, IMO.

No, I am not connected in any way!

I am so looking forward to version 2 if it comes out - anyone know any news on that front?

Faulkermano has a neat Point_Clone_Extra v4 that's very handy
