I’m always moving stuff around and purging my models. I frequently loose skatter objects on purge (it didn’t use to happen before, but suddenly it’s happening a lot, I don’t know why). I also group/ungroup skatter surfaces or clipping areas while I model and reorganize the model.
Skatter notifies me of these changes and prompts me to reselect objects, but as they simply disappear from list, when I pick them, I never know if I’m picking the same objects or if they are getting the same Skatter properties.
Can the UI change for this and the object’s names, instead of disappearing from list, are shown red or greyed out?
Maybe a button for reloading/repicking/replace them for others would be available which would allow us to perform those actions.
NOTE; Replacing an object for another while keeping the same properties would be very useful, either if these objects are missing or not.
If, in the other hand, we didn’t want the objects anymore, we would simply erase the red entry.
Right now, as it is, I’m loosing too much time searching for objects and setting them up from scratch again so I’m sure they will work.
I know I sound a sloppy modeller, but the thing is that I’m no archviz artist, I’m an architect and my model is multipurposed so I have to iterate through design, manage model and scenes for construction docs, presentations and render and it takes a huge effort to make all this fit together.
Thanks in advance,
