i places a simple tree object in my model, along with several instances of that object. sketch material is only applied to the original and not the instances. how can i get the sketch material to show on the instances?

thanks for input.

it should show unless you have made the instances Render Instances

if you are using Instances, Render Instance is a setting in the Object Tab of the instance. It is off by default so unless you checked it on you should have S&T. Maybe you are doing something different. Clones?

i uploaded a screen shot. the first, original tree (right) shows sketch and toons outlines (here exaggerated). the others are instances, but do not show the s&t outlines. in the object window, the green checks were on by default. i tried turning them off and changing the display settings (buttons t the left of the checks) but it only turned the trees on and off.

the original model is sent directly from vectorworks. with some altertions in c4d.

thanks for any input.

in a simple test here (following your structure - or close to your structure since I can't tell what's inside the Foliage null) it works. Are you sure 'Render Instances' in the the simple tree instances Object tab is not checked?

Brian,

when i finally noticed where the "render instance" box is, it was checked just as you suggested.

however, the problem seemed to be in the foliage null object. when the sketch material is applied to the null object, it only shows in the original object (old image). however, when the sketch material is applied to each of the children, then it shows in all instances (as long as render instance is unchecked). that seems like a strange logic. is that as designed?

here is the latest:



thanks for your help.
