Hi, I am new to Genetica, and would like to know if it's possible to repeat an object along a path? I am trying to repeat an item that I created in the Canvas, along another "freehand" path that I created. For example, a dog-tag chain, where I'd like 1 chain piece repeated, along a curvy wave or a pattern path that I have drawn. (I tried bombing, via the Synthesis, but I can only bomb items in Genetica-defined structured patterns, or randomly). I have the Pro version. Any ideas or suggestions?

How about using the combine node.

Hi, thanks for the suggestion. It's not quite as precise as I'd like, but it will do for a workaround for now.

(Eventually, I'd like to be able to repeat a single object, in its entirety, without being cropped/bombed, along a single line/path).

It's a bit tricky, but you can do something like that. The only problem is that you can't apply a gradient that follows a path, so you must prepare these paths as images, and then use them to remap what you want. So this is it, you grab your image, Move & Repeat it as many times as you want (8 in my example) and remap the results on your pre-made gradient maps. I hope it helps ;) Cheers!
