So you can’t “just” get the position of the camera, and the position of the selected object and depending on the distance between the two make a LOD automatically apply?
Even using multithreading or just a refresh button?
Need suggestion why not working for me. What i did i created a cylinder and given rigid body and drop in the bowl. Then i shift+d and made several copies to side and a stack also and drop into the bowl to make a shape. Then i deleted all they frame and got the shape and the cylinder.
Two problems in your methodology:
-You used Shift-D before setting your LOD, thus all your copies currently don’t have any LOD set up.
-you might want to use alt+D for this case. i’d advise to learn the difference between making duplicates and copies.
I may need a file sample in order to understand your problem more deeply if the two advices here above didn’t help
No It’s working correctly
It’s just that you did a bit weird stuff with first of all duplicating the model instead of instancing it, doing the LOD set up after duplicating everything and hoping that it would apply to all copies somehow & also there was error in transforms, where the high transforms wasn’t the same as the proxy transform
Hey, i’d like to know if proxify would work with linked assets.
For example, if i have a .blend containing only the reference of heavy assets, as collection intance for example, would it be possible to load only the LOD version in the current scene, and load the HD version in render or if i click on a button ?
This is for example some Imeshh assets, the creator is from architecture modeling and add 12 surburf on every mesh, and they are very heavy and not to scale.
As there is no working asset manager yet, it’s easier to make a python script to link all to the scene, and use the scene to get inspiration of what to use. But if i link all imeshh collection the scene would take years to load all geometry to my ram, until the swap as i only have 64gigs.
What would be great is to have a collection of .blend, each having LOD generated per object or per collection, and linking only the simplified one to block out the scene, and use the HD version when needed (or LOD1, LOD2, LOD3 depending on object size relative to camera).
I’ll update lodify for blender 3.0
I should be able to port lodify principle to a geometry node modifier, that should work well with linked assets
i still need to do some research about it but it looks promising
It actually works. In the attached example I have an asset with three lods. in the proxy lod I active lodify setting the other two lod. In the scene file I link the proxy object, I make it local (only object) and everything works without any mesh being loaded into the scene (all linked).
