What I’d like to do is select a group of objects. Run script.
-Prompt for number x of layers
-Make x layers
-Assign each object in the selection randomly to one of the layers. I know true randomization is difficult but someone clever can probably figure something out.
In my case I’d like to use it for floors, which are made of hundreds of planks. I’ve got a handful of different plank images. I’d like to assign a different plank materials to each layer… and if the planks could all go on the layers randomly I would end up with beautiful natural looking floors.
There’s lots of cool things you could do with this though. At Christmas time I did some strings of lights and this would have been helpful for randomizing the bulb colors.
