Random controller provides an extensive interface to generating random values in Para 3d. However the challenge is how to use same random value for all members in a same dimension. This video is an example of using variable override controller to control the behavior of random controller.

Enabling and disabling MAX modifiers via Para

Posted in: All Tutorials- Oct 02, 2013 No Comments

In Para 3d 3.2 and higher , modifiers states can be set via Para 3d. Para controllers which can provide Boolean Type of values can be used to enable /disable the modifiers. Example below is showing how to use this function to delete objects from array dynamically by changing the DeleteMesh modifier state from Off […]

Select random value from a given list

Posted in: All Tutorials, Random values- Apr 08, 2013 1 Comment

Random controller generates random values in range of [min,max]. for example in range of 1 to 20 you can expect numbers line 2.45123 and 10. Now what if you want to pick a value which you defined previously in a random manner. let’s say you have a list of scalar values like {2,5,10,20} and only […]
