Instancing ObjectsBelow is an example of instancing objects. The sample here is a conveyor belt seemingly churning out objects.
Instance RotationsIn my attempt to complete the instance rotations file, I hit a flaw somewhere. I have a feeling it may be around the point in which I created the 360 arrows in their rotation. I realised in my outliner I was missing a second group (the instances group I think) and then later on Maya kept throwing this error message at me.
Error: file: /Applications/Autodesk/maya2013/Maya.app/Contents/scripts/AETemplates/AEdynParticleInstancerNew.mel line 491: Could not find attribute named ".cycle"
In any case, despite following the tutorial, I have arrows that fire well, but have no rotation. (Which was the point in the exercise.) So they're all at the same angle :/ I think I will have to give this one another go another time.
