The goal is to take an image of a book cover, turn that into a book that has thickness/pages, then make a stack of the thick books. There will be a camera flying past the stack so the thickness of the books is important.
So I first turned the cover into a book by replicating the cover into a line shape and tweaking until the thickness is good. The book looks great using a replicator. I made this into a group called ThickBook.
Now I wanted to add a replicator to the thickbook group in order to see a stack of the thick books.
The problem is, adding the replicator to the thickbook group causes the first replicator to go dead. I only see a stack of single-layered covers.
I tried to clone the individual replicated book, then apply the stack replicator to the clone, but the same thing happens with the clone, the books lose their thickness.
