  2. Controlling Focus Distance

    Hey, Also , you can find the distance between camera and arbitrary point in SOP level and then fetch it as your Focus distance value. See attached example. Hope it help. focus_distance1.hipnc
  3. One of the way, is to use Pre-render script to assign shader until render start.
  4. **VEX NOOB** create random float values

    By default rand function creates a random number between 0 and 1 from a seed. Multiply this value i@rand_num = int(rand(@ptnum)*10); or use fit function i@rand_num = int(fit(rand(@ptnum), 0, 1, 0, 10)); And also in your example you used a @numpt as seed (which is return total number of points). Hope it's help.
