Multishader - First Clone Is Grey

Recommended Posts

  • Topic Author
  • I'm hoping this is just a simple mistake. i'm using multishader on some clones along a spline, no matter what I do the first clone is always grey. any ideas?

  • here it is.

    while i was stripping the scene down I noticed that if you switch off the 1st sphere under the cloner it affects the 2nd one? not sure if this is related. looks like something is going wrong...

  • after rendering I've just noticed that all the textures swap places half way through as well??

    this multishader is starting to look like more trouble than it's worth

    hy

    By changing the hierarchy under your cloner it was fixed

    i removed the null, and placed the 2nd sphere and tube under the 1st sphere,then put the multishader on the sphere.

    Voila

    i attached the fixed setup

    hope it helps

  • thanks for trying anyway : )

    I've been asking around and I've been told it could be something to do with the cloner offset messing up the index ratio, but I have no idea what to do about it.

    I need to use this as a template for a few different versions so it will waste a lot of time if i have to texture them separately.

    ok

    i think i got it :thumbsup:

    i disabled the cloner's offset so it won't mess up the textures

    and used a spline deformer instead

    and it seems to work

    ofcourse you'll have to adjust the animation

    check the file to see the results

    hope it helped
