AnimationWorks - 20 Objects Max'?

Recommended Posts

Hi All,


I have the need to rotate 100 cubes for a visualisation using the AnimationWorks plugin. However, AW will only allow 20 objects, thus missing out the remaining 80. 


Is this normal?

The default maximum is 20 and this is just to reduce the memory requirements. You can change this however by opening the AW_Constants.vss file in a text editor. This file is in the Plug-Ins/Data folder. Once you have the file open, scroll down to line 70 and look for this:

kRotateObjectLimit = 20; { max number of rotation PIO objects on each layer }

Just be aware that increasing some of these limits can increase the processing time.
