Fabricio Chamon says,
This is a commissioned tool developed for the modeller Jose Manuel Linares
The main goal was to have a flexible, artistic centric tool that allowed for productivity while abstracting the ICE layer from the user, and outputs a clean (freezed) and UV'd polygon mesh.
Some features:
- Password protection module
- Interaction via main custom property
- Density/size weight maps generation and connection
- Instance relaxation (even distribution)
- Many randomization controls (rotation/size/push)
- Surface alignment (with blending)
- Instance and geometry avoidance with group controls
- Live particle/mesh preview mode
- transfer UVs/Materials from master objects
- Scene clean-up (system collapses to one single polygon mesh)
