Scatter the exact number of geometry (unique, no duplicates)

Unread postby Karen_Jonhson » Thu Jul 30, 2020 8:49 am

I need to scatter geometry (e.g. 21 items), I can create a scatterer and point cloud, use the geometry but I may get duplicates even if I enter the exact number (21) in the point cloud.
I can instance and translate one by one but I hope it's clear that it's not practical, especially with larger numbers
Is there a way to make sure I only scatter unique items?

You picked my curiosity a big time! What's the point of using a scatterer in that case?

Foreground items need to be dealt with differently, it would be embarrassing to have duplicates (even with rotation and scale) right in front of the camera.
How can I do that?

I am thinking you could just use scatter probability, requires some simple math (4.76%)

or a bit more involved, Luminance or ID

that being said, its only 21 items, you could have had it done by hand placing them by now.

There's a much simpler solution.
