Instances set to render inst. in a scene

Recommended Posts

Anyone knows of a script that sets all instances in a scene to 'render instances' ?

I see no option in C4D to do that by default. And I often import cad files with lot instances. So it would be really helpful to have that solved.

By the way, I think MAXON should add an option for that.

  • Ah I was wrong on CAD import (I had FBX before) all instances are set to render instance. Creating a problem when trying to collapse them, the 'c' make editable not working on render instances. Can't see a reason why. First need to set them to instances. Do developers never think in the way users do?

    I have to create my a script:

    1. Select an item.

    2. If I item is instance then select the source.

    3. Select all instance of source object.

    4. convert them to instance

    5. make them editable.

    6. add source to selection

    7. connect delete all objects, so you have only one.
