hehe, seems like CGI and pottery are often used together - my boss is a grandios potterer, too. :)

Nice Teapots and nice ICE work!

nope. once they entered new state, i gave them some velocity (with a little bit randomized direction)

here is the scene file with the latest test. there are only objects and ICE stuff. no shaders or lighting :)
http://www.milanvasek.com/downloads/icetest003.zip

btw, there is another weird thing. i exported model with pointclouds and ICE trees with subframe sampling set to 2. but when i imported this model into new scene, it was using only 1 subframe sample no matter what i set (i tried put it back to 1, then 2, 3...) and the only solution was to create new pointcloud, copy the whole ICE tree manualy and set subframe samples to 2...
is it just me or did it happen to anyone? :)

i've slowly started learning python and i decided to make some buttons that will simplify working with my scatter tools (and make them easier to use for people who are still afraid of using ICE). they actually create ice nodes, let you pick some objects in viewport, inspect those nodes later so you dont have to open ICEtree and similar basic stuff like those things in new ICE panel...

and one more ICE test i did some time ago...


and now back to work with maya... :-s :((

With that toolbar, your scattering package will be (even more) a killer addon :D ^:)^

It's great to see it evolving :-bd

well, i changed the look of toolbar a little bit. its cleaner and smaller now... adding some cool features and I included abScatter with permission from Andreas...
im also preparing a demo scene. this one is rendered with vray beta. sorry about the noise, i used quite low settings on bruteforce GI.
there are more than 500 000 instances so its quite cool to render that on my old laptop...

hehe, when I see your tool, im dreaming about a procedural landscape generator. a combination of your tool with something like ice tree, procedural rocks, some kinda greeble for buildings, ect.
So that you can paint your house- tree- rockmaps in photoshop, run the tool and voila, a landscape appears :D

Hello. I'm new to ice. I used your compound to instantiate an animation, creating a crowd effect. My problem is that all instances are moving at the same time. there any way to randomize this? regards
