Rendering each object seperately.
show user profile  odiecreversed
I have a map of the US with all the states as separate objects. I need to be able to render each state separately but I don't want to have to go through every state setting the renderable state for each one every time. Is there a quick way to do this by any chance?

Thanks a lot

Do you know any maxscript?

No, I've never looked into it before although I do have experience with programming in other languages. Do you think that's the way to go? and you think it would take long for me to learn enough to be able to do that?

This should give you some place to start from. $ means the selected objects. Select some objects, run the code below, and it will render the objects one by one to a new window. You can modify this to save the files, whatever you need. Hope this gives you a start.

for i = 1 to $.count do
hide $selection
print "done"
unhide $

Thanks so much Nik. When I said 'objects' I should have put 'groups'. I just made the groups into objects though and it worked fine! Wonderful!
