~Scatter Tool Python Script for Poser 11~

**This version only works in Poser 11. A new and improved version is being released for Poser 12 with even more features.

Scatter Tool for Poser 11 available at Renderosity HERE.

Whenever you wish to add lots of objects to your scene, each with their own scale/rotation variations, with option to align them to follow a surface, this tool can fully automate that for you. Randomly scatter props and figures over any plane or 3D solid with a push of a button!

The interface is simple, but powerful.

What's Included & Features:

Python Script (.py) Scatter Tool plug-in for Poser Features:

  • Fully automated scattering tool
  • Simple, easy-to-use interface
  • Can scatter both figures and props
  • Can manage multiple scattering layers in the same session
  • Automatically manages max number of scattered objects per surface
  • Option to auto-create scale and rotation variations for each scattered object
  • You can toggle all variations on/off in any order, and control their amounts
  • Option to align objects to the surface
  • Support for scattering billboard objects that always face the main camera
  • Billboard objects have an additional horizontal flipping option
  • Offers 8 preview styles to help managing performance impact
  • Preview styles can be applied separately per object to scatter
  • Allows mass-removing scattered objects with a single click
  • Mass-removing only affects objects created by the tool. It will not remove the original objects you have placed in the scene
  • Object mass-removing is specific to the currently selected object to scatter
  • Manages scene scattered objects with an self-maintained Grouping object
  • The internal Grouping object will keep all scattered objects separate from your scene in the Hierarchy Editor, so it remains organized and easier to manage
  • The internal Grouping object can be used to toggle all scattered objects visibility on/off with 1-click using the Hierarchy Editor
  • Auto-prefixes scattered object names to avoid conflicts with existing scene objects. There is an option to edit this prefix
  • Supports scattering figures with attached props and conformed items
  • Great way to automate the creation of large amount of objects to use in physics simulations
  • Manual (.pdf)
  • Illustrated PDF manual with instructions, hints, and usage examples

You can use the tool for a variety of applications, like for example, to create landscapes. The 2 examples below were made by scattering over the Poser ground plane.

You can use billboards to create entire forests where each tree is only a single poly, so even 200 trees wouldn't slow down Poser previews, and render much faster as well. Billboards can be made by rendering a high poly 3D tree, and then mapping it to a single-side square primitive from the Poser props > Primitives library. Don't know how to create billboard trees? Check my video tutorial and learn how quick and easy it is, using only a single render!

Promo01_1080.jpg

You can add variety to billboard forests by using the "Allow Flipping" option, which flips some billboards horizontally to add variety.

Promo06_800x600.jpg

Billboards are not limited to trees. Create crowds of people like it was never possible in Poser before.

Add weeds to a ruined building.

Build a city out of low poly cubes:

Make a maze out of cubes.

Another question, Ken:

If I want to populate rows of books or wine bottles on horizontal shelves, can this script do that ? (I can guess I could rotate the props and populate and then rotate back)

Yes, and the process would similar to how I have build the brick wall, but simpler. You may have to delete some extra bottles, but removing is easier than adding. :)
