So here's my request: I tend to work with multiple referenced components that I periodically reload as I develop a model. My workflow is something like this:
1: Select and make components out of those regions of a model.
2: Save out component to an x-ref folder that I can dynamically reload as needed.
3: Open the model and edit skatter components there. This is where I run into issues with Skatter.
If I create different skatter lists using the "Render only" function and save the model, those lists don't transfer when I reload to my working scene. So I'm forced to re-generate placing the proxies on the surface which can be expensive to model size even when it's only proxy geometry.
I have two thoughts on how to remedy this - Let me know if they are impractical or if there's a better way to manage a Skatter scene that I'm not aware of.
1: Bake the Render list with the component/scene so that it transfers when imported into another project.
2: Make it so that you can "Import Render Lists" from another scene and then re-select the referenced proxies.
This all could be just my ignorance to the product, and I would love to hear other users workflows regarding imported groups and components.
