Question about the ecosystem


..these days i did so many studies about VUE. but can find a great solution for much faster workflow. i wonder if the Vue calculates the instead of ecosystem that outside the camera?is there a way can populate the instead like the camera projection? can place the instead after calculating the range of view from camera?

If i understand correctly your question there are 2 ways to do that.

1.Manual.You can paint the ecosystem yourself, putting the instances only where the camera sees.

2.Dynamic.If you make your ecosystem to populate dynamically, then it will only put instances where the camera sees.To do that you have to check the apropriate option "Dynamic Population"

does Dynamic population mean populate the instead just when rendering? i will try , thanks!

Or, you could have the best of both by using Camera Projection to set up a dynamic alpha (driven by said cam projection) for the distribution channel of your regular (non 'dynamic') ecosystem. That way when you populate your main eco, it will only populate in the camera view. This will be a Huge savings in resources
