That is only a small blog. I simply changed the layout to a new version, free from blogger :wink:
Thanks a lot anyway! Hope you'll be one of my fellow followers!! :lol:

Hi,

I just took an hour and a half to read this entire thread :)

It would be great and very usefull to be able to:

_Scatter objects into a volume ( Drop of rain, dust particles, or what ever the object we want ) And be able to control their orientation/inclination to simulate some wind when raining for exemple ( the most windy scene, the most inclinated drops ).

_Get the scattered object coloured with the color of the pixel corresponding to where the object is scattered on the ground texture: so that we can get a caterpillar carpet wich keeps the color of the carpet's texture. This would be just perfect for an interior scene, but for a lot of other situations too.
This should be an additionnal checkbox option to activate if needed, keeping the actual parameters of the build-in scatter editor.

This is something that would be extremely usefull I think :roll:

The first thing is, again, a job for fluid simulators/physics engines. :wink:

Second one could be cool I guess.

Thanks Oscar for your reply,

I'm not a developer, but it seems to me that scattering objects into a volume would be as "simple" as scatter them on a plane with addition of one more axis ( a vertical one ), no ? There would be absolutely no need of a fluid simulator, since a simple mesh of a rain drop ( wich can easily be modeled even in sketchup ) or of a dust fiber would then simply be scattered just like a simple scatter, I guess.

But to be honest the pixel based colouring of scattered objects, is a lot more important from my opinion, for a good example, when a room has a ground carpet on all its surface, it gives a lot more realism with fiber respecting the colors of it than just a flat texture. I've got a lot of scenes that would benefit this option and I'm sure I'm not alone. If I am correct, this option is available in other exporters since many years already :roll:
The volume scattering proposal was sort of a (attractive) bonus :lol:

Any developer's opinion would be greatly apreciated :D

I think it would be nice to have an option that allows you to set ON the "SINGLE FACE " option directly from Skindigo :D instead in Indigo...i mean , to select single faces from a file after the render has started is kinda annoying ...just a saying :mrgreen:

What about to have an option/tool to match the Sketchup's sun with the HDRI/EXR sun or light ?. I think it would be really useful..at least for me 8)

You can actually get a very similar effect with a shader, using world coordinates to lookup in the texture. That's not super convenient though.

Can the scatter editor be utilised within Indigo? (eg so we can change density/weightings of objects)

I was thinking that it would be really nice to have an object browser , i mean ....I have lots of external .Obj tree files which are kinda hard to recognize due what is displayed in sketchup is only a single box. It could be a really time saver. Something like image below would be great ! :D
