New Plug-In preview

Due out as soon as I track down all the bugs...

my first plug-in... it is a simple useful tool which extends the EIAS functionality. There is no name yet (what's in a name) but it is a simple instancing tool for EIAS. This is early for me to post, but I am excited to get to this point where I have a working example.

In this example, there is a uber sphere, XP and my plug-in...


I am planning an alpha release asap... hope people will find this useful

Looks interesting. I can imagine several uses for this. Looking forward to its release.

Nice! Can you attach particle emitters (or other plugins) to each instance? or 'could' that be added to the plugin?

I may be off my rocker...either way, I will use it!

It depends from how interested/usable the "instancing options" are

understandable...

each instance has position/rotation/scale channels which are controllable via XP... there will be no terrain detection, it is meant as a basic instancer, not a Placer Depositor style plug... more utilitarian...

FYI, wil be a free plug...

Well, "more utilitarian" == better IMO it's a good idea to add some aux channels for each instance (besides position/rotation/scale), for example:
- color;
- selected flag;
- 1-2 custom channels (user can define their names and type)

well, hopefully feadback will provide insight into that... and I am trying to keep things simple for my first plug. Those are good ideas, maybe v0.01b I can add some of those
