VA CloneOnCurve

3 votes
Version: 
1.1

An extended version of the (AClone on curve) modifier that ships with 3ds max, this one adds the ability to read multiple curves per shape and distribute the clones based on the size of the mesh.

Update 1.1:

The new update brings the ability to control the number of clones incrementally, and if you edited the first point in your shape you can control were the clones start to appear of finish.

about solozar error

Make sure you have the last extension (2) installed.
try to open the (VA GetCurves Length array) in MCG and evaluate it manually and see what do you get.

For randomness

This tool will stay simple but you can use my other tool (brick wall builder)
check it out:
http://www.scriptspot.com/3ds-max/mcg/brick-wall-builder
if you set the min and max to 1 you will get the same as here but with the ability of unlimited randomness. but put in mind that the brick wall tool doesnt support multi curve at the moment, i'm implementing it now.
