  1. Hi, I 'd write a simple script what uses a Null object as a control object to call a python script in its parameters. I use the eval python function by called a callback line. The issue is that the capturing goes on but not writes only just a few images. What could be wrong ? THX

  5. Cracked Ground Geometry

    Hi, I am working on a collapsing ground scene. On a hillside geometry I create curves for shattering the geometry into organically cracked pieces. It's working. But when I shatter these pieces again the boolean operator causes a trouble. It says 'Nonmanifold edges in solid'. What I tried: polydoctor sop to check the wrong geometry and repair it. It does not solves the problem. What was working, but maybe not an optimal sollution to convert the shattered geo to vdb and back to poly and shatter then. But it looses it's details in geo. My question: 1. Is there a way to prepare the geo to avoid nonmanifold error. 2. In a loop of more cracked pieces how can I check the boolean result error to make a correction. Thanks in advance!
