instance lights Feb. 19, 2024, 6:03 p.m.

Does this apply to "nested instancing" as well?

For example, I set up a car with lights scattered throughout using the "reference" method.
Then I want to instance that car around using a point instancer.
I'm finding that I only get a set of lights on one of the instances and not all.

I'm having exactly the same issue right now We're looking into using for loops?

if I have a pop sim that I'm instancing some geo on and then I SOP import that into Solaris, I'm looking for the ability to USD Rop it out with the needed substeps. The SOP context had all the substeps I need, but I'm not sure how to put them into the USD.

If using SOP Import then I'd consider a setup like the attached hip where you split the SOP import off to the side in its own branch, specifically Cache that branch with a bunch of substeps, and then Merge those time samples into the rest of your scene.


Hey, this fixed it! Thanks so much!

Okay neat, thank you for the responses.

So, if I have a pop sim that I'm instancing some geo on and then I SOP import that into Solaris, I'm looking for the ability to USD Rop it out with the needed substeps. The SOP context had all the substeps I need, but I'm not sure how to put them into the USD.

Would it be by lowering this `inc` value to something below 1? I'm going to try it and see if it does what I need.


Thanks again!
