Combining layer instancing and anchor points

Hello,

I am not sure there is information about the way we can combine anchor points and instanced layers. So I encounter a problem with my anchor points the way I work. perhaps someone will have an idea to solve this issue.

 

I have a layer constructed with some anchor points coming from another layer. So far so good, everything is fine. But if I instance this layer, it destroys the link to my anchor point in mys source layer, and the tab is greyed out when I want to relink the below layer. Is it normal ? Is there a way to instance a layer with anchor points coming from below itself ?

 

Thanks in advance for any help.

Hi Yann,

 

Thanks for the question.

 

Unfortunately, Anchor points don't work with Layer instancing. A workaround could be to make a Smart Material out of all the desired layer (RMB on a group > Create Smart Material), and apply it in the other texture sets. Not really convenient, I agree, but can be usefull.

 

Best regards,

Thanks for your suggestion. For now, as it is in the same texture set, I just copy&paste the needed layers but for exporting to another material, I will definitively follow your advice..

Perhaps it could be a suggestion of feature for future releases 😉
