The Build Array From Set used by Softimage 2012 is a custom node, not multi-threaded and with less types (no array of topology or locations allowed).
The Build Array from Set in Softimage 2013 is a new factory node who is supporting those features.
I guess you could make your compounds compatible for 2012 using a text editor and doing a search and replace in all your compounds from 2013.
But in this case, the compounds loaded in 2013 would use the old Build Array From Set. So doing two versions would be better.
I understand it can be annoying, but giving a new name to the factory version was not the final choice (for various reasons I can't remember now
Guil, you can say whatever you want about two versions of compounds and other unnecessary things that I can do with it.
The end user will not get the compounds for his older version of the software, and I will not force him to buy overpriced
upgrade for it.
Build Array from Set worked perfect, multi-threading will not make difference comparing to amount of data that flow in ICE trees in one repeat loop just because most of the ICE topo nodes
are not allow you to input per component data
, because of another bug locations are not allowed
, so all that changes were ill-considered in every-fucking-single way.
Sometimes it's just fine to say "We're screwed". Because that way there is a chance that you'll not make same mistakes again.
