This is only rough idea how to convert objects to MultiScatter

First it creates new distribution object and then MultiScatter distributes objects on it.
It keeps transform (position, scale and rotation) of objects

How to do:
Select first instances you want to convert and then run the script

v0.30
- faster conversion + cleaner code

This script is not installed. To use it select the objects you want to convert and drag and drop the script's file onto your 3ds Max viewports.

Hello, I don't know where to find it after installation

re: suggestions

Hi 1rv,

1. Not sure why small lines are better then small planes - could yo explain more ? (and not sure if small lines will keep proper scale of the objects)

2. it should already use "Regular pattern" - at least in MultiScatter version I use here - which version do you use ?

3. Collisions, should be off - you right - will add that.

Best,

Suggestion

Hi Pixamoon,
The goal of the following suggestions is to keep the right orientation (=rotation)* of scatter objects and avoid their overlapping
Would it be possible:
1/ istead of small planes use small lines (of 5cm**). It'd be nice if they had thickness of say 40cm.
2/ Multiscatter should use 'Regular pattern' insted of Random one.
3/ Generate and Receive collisions is ON (>/= 100%)

*Important in majority of cases (ArchViz)
** Given dimentions are rather suitable for exteriors
