Object Properties

Object Reference

Drag the object to be used to generate the MoInstances from the Object Manager into this field. When an MoInstance Object is created it will automatically place any object that happens to be active into this field. The first instance will be arranged at the position of the MoInstance Object itself. The position of the original object that was referenced is therefore non-crucial and can thus be moved out of the field of view of the camera.

Clone or Tracer Objects can also be placed into this field, which can lead to spectacular effects. Feel free to experiment with these settings, the possibilities are practically endless.

Animating the referenced object’s position, scale or rotation settings will not do any good - the MoInstance Object itself must be animated.

History Depth [1..2147483647]

Use this setting to define the number of frames the Instance Object will look into the past when it generates instances.
