Trying to scatter objects along both sides of a spline

<< < (2/2)

In C4D, I set this way fairly easily using a Mograph Cloner set to Object and dropped the Spline in the slot. Now this technique is using a spline that matches the curves of the tube thing. This might be clunky if you only have an existing mesh and not a sweep setup with a separate spline already. The other trick is to group two red objects and two green objects together. I feel this made it much simpler.

I believe this could also work if I selecting a loop of polygons along the middle of the tube, and used that to restrict where the clones go.

I'm not an expert with Scatter yet and for all I know, you're a Max user, but thought his may give you some ideas.

Great ideas. Worked like a charm.
