Nested models? instances pointing to another file?
on Sep 29, 2014 at 10:54:01 pm

I want to place an *instance* of a model into another model. Like this:

street.c4d
-----> which contains a pointer to car.c4d


If I modify car.c4d, I want to be able to open street.c4d and see the change.

Another way to ask is, can an instance point to a different c4d file? Like a symbolic link?

Thanks!

You need to use XRef

Go to Create >> XRef >> Add XRef, and select the scene file

This will merge a scene on to the scene already open, and everytime you change something to the merge Scene file, you just need to press Reload inside the XRef to see the changes.

Good Luck

Imagination is the best tool...

Wow. I never knew that was there. THANKS A LOT!
