This MCG allows you to clone splines, open or closed. There's various offsets like scale and translation.
Tool can be found in Shapes Creation Panel>Max Creation Graph>Vu_CloneSpls
Ver 1.01: fixed noob error, Div by 0. Modulator minimum now is 0.001
Ver 1.02: added Progressive/Random Rotation
Please Note: if you try to modify the compound that comes with this tool, read the critical bug that I posted here https://www.facebook.com/groups/1611269852441897/permalink/1685675845001...
Basically, MCG compounds are limited to max 16 Input parameters...hit 17, compile and you'll lose your Graph Editor...or worse...BEWARE !!! So mine has got 14...so couldn't quite squeeze in Random Scale as well
Ver 1.03: added Random Scale !!!
ver 1.04: added Random Scatter
ver 1.05: added Stock/Cookie Cutter functionality
ver 1.06: correct minor bug in that the 1st instance does not get Offset at all (coz Index = 0), it's fixed now
ver 1.08: some updates, these are outlined in red. Hey sorry to be curt, I can't be bothered anymore..but please thank Swordslayer for his RandomRaysOnMesh compound. I tried my best to get everything working but wasn't up to the task so for an animated surface, some clones jump around.
When you're in Surface mode, put the Vu_CloneSpls at 0,0,0 and the clones would then be ON the surface, otherwise there would be an offset.
Any small donations to email@example.com would be greatly appreciated. I intend to then fully donate onto the following:
Thankyou. Meow. Woof. Moooo. Oink. Grrrl.....Bzzzz...
