Use Multi Instance without cloner for manually placing copies
on Jul 11, 2020 at 5:31:53 am

So I am working on a architectural project and I have huge detailed assets of carvings, I want to clone these assets to a specific position in my scene using multi-instance as it won't eat up my memory compared to render instance, I was wondering is there a way to do so?

i.e. if I make instance object of the asset and use it in multi-instance mode nothing shows up in viewport as well as in render, but when i use it in render instance mode it shows up fine.

Thanks for this great community of creative cow

I think the MultiInstance can only be used with a Position Source for where the instances will go. And the only difference, as I read it, is that multi-instance makes all the instances a single object a single object (internally) so viewport performance will be quicker compared with Render Instances.
