Awesome... getting things nice and symetrical has been a pain for me :XD:
BTW I'm looking for someone to make an object for me... (I suck at doing things like that)... I need a hypodermic needle for a scene I'm working on in Bryce 7... You wouldn't happen to wanna help me out would you :D?

Yep, still need one if you have time to make one...
I'm trying to replicate the "Red Matter" scene from Star Trek :)

i'm not a trekkie, so i'm not familiar with the scene you reference. but i did find a cool syringe model on the net (free usage/non commercial).
i email'd it to you.

Very helpful tut. I created this while playing with it.

I'm curious though, is the copy-paste technique used to work around the duplicate bug? They may have fixed that by now, but I felt much better using this method. So thanks. :)
TexManson's avatar
thanks...i dunno about a dup bug, this was just the way i 1st did it. it worked so i didn't try to figure out another way :D

I read in the Daz forums that when using the duplicate or multi-replicate shortcuts your file could become corrupted. As far as I know it never happened to me but I stopped doing it anyway. I had never thought of this. :D

LOL - I'm totally confused now.
I thought it was an Incendia tutorial, but my programme looks different.
Is this Bryce? If so, I will find it!!!
