RANDOMIZE OBJECTS – OVERVIEW

 

The Randomize Objects randomly adjusts the position, rotation and scale of multiple models. Any attributes with decimal places can be adjusted.

THE PROBLEM

 

There is no easy way to randomize multiple objects in Maya.

 
 

THE SOLUTION

 

Randomize Objects is a simple UI that allows you to randomize objects quickly.

Select the Channel Box attributes you’d like to randomize. Type the Min and Max range of the attributes and run.

 
 

USING THE TOOL

 

1. Select the objects you’d like to randomize.
2. Select the attributes you’d like to randomize in the Channel Box.
3. Enter the minimum and maximum range values.
4. Choose whether to randomize based on Relative or Absolute values.
5. Randomize attributes Uniformly Per Axis (scale values) or Randomly Per Axis

 
 

COMPACT SETTINGS

 

Relative/Absolute Drop Down Settings
Relative: The objects are randomly offset relative to their current values.
Absolute: The objects are randomized within the absolute given range.

Random/Uniform Per Axis Drop Down
Affects either Randomly or Uniformly per attribute.
Use on Uniform to keep all scale ratios consistent while performing the randomize.

Range Max/Min
Set the Minimum and Maximum value range of the randomize.

Randomize Selected Channel Box Attributes Button
Press this button to perform the randomize.

 
 

ADVANCED SETTINGS

 

Randomize Object Space
Relative: The objects are randomly offset relative to their current values.
Absolute: The objects are randomized within the absolute given range.

Translation Range
Specify the minimum and maximum X, Y, Z values of the randomize.

Rotation Range
Specify the minimum and maximum X, Y, Z values of the randomize.

Scale Range
Specify the minimum and maximum X, Y, Z values of the randomize.

Random/Uniform Per Axis Radio Button
Affects the scale either Randomly or Uniformly per attribute.
Use on Uniform to keep all scale ratios consistent while performing the randomize.

Custom Attribute
Specify the name of a custom attribute to randomize. Attributes must be decimal numbers (floats).

Randomize Objects Button
Press this button to perform the randomize.
