I am new to skatter and trying to figure out a few things.
- I know that I can save and load skatters, but these come with set objects and things. Is there a way to save settings only in a certain way? e.g. I find myself always using the rotate z function but every time I open the skatter window it is reset to +/- 5 on the x and y variables as well. I guess this is for organic appearance, but I’ve changed these to 0 so many times (and it takes more time if a lot of models are there!) Also, I often want to try the same skatter with different components so I often want to bring up the same settings.
2.How do I delete a skatter? I understand skatter is parametric and always editable. Especially if I check off “render only” it seems like I can’t delete them. Thea seems to see them, for one.
- I am trying to achieve the greatest density I can in a random field without overlaps. So, I have tried a bunch of settings to eliminate gaps that are larger than 1 component dimensions. It always seems a bit off. Is there a skatter that I can download that will provide this setting? I’ve tried both random and uniform and think I have a good grasp of the collision avoider.
- This kind of refers to #3. Can probability be used over 100%? I understand how it pertains to less than 100%, but have tried to use it to pack more in - to fill holes, but it does not seems to have a significant effect beyond 100%. Is it doing anything past that?
Thanks much - it’s a great plugin!
