instances out of copies
show user profile  makie
hi, i have the problem that i have forgotten to make instances by copying the flowers of the balcony in a scene. the scene has 13 million polygons(flowers 12,5millions), and takes ages to render. before i did a project with 8 million polygons, copied with instances and it rendered perfectly fast.
as i have spent more than 2 hours arranging the flowers, i would like to find a workaround to make instances out of my copies.

So I came across this thread looking for my own thread with the same topic. Garp helped me out with a maxscript fix at the time. Can't find my own thread and this ^ script isn't working for me. I run it and nothing happens.. Help, anyone?

Works absolutely fine here.
Max 2011 64x with latest product updates and service packs.

edit: Not much use... but could be a version issue.
