@ Donovan. Hi I’m using the helpful CV import to quickly add complete directories of images to a grid array cloner. Great !
But now i’m using a target and push apart effector combined with a VRCam right in the center of the Cloner, so that all the planes are facing the VRcam. So far so good and the VR image in my Google-cardboard looks fantastic except that all the images are flipped horizontally. Is there a method or script to flip them all in one go ? https://youtu.be/kSF8by4sLA0

Glad you found a solution! I’ve added it as an issue in our BugTracker for further review. I’m not sure whether the best solution is to rotate the planes 180 degrees by default, or to apply the textures twice so that both the front and back show the image facing correctly. How would you imagine this working?

Hi Donovan , thanks for the reply . In fact it was more of a suggestion than a bug.  This happens only when the target is positioned or travelling
inside the cloner object, with the VRCam in the same centerposition as the target.
If i were a scripter (which I’m not) i think i would use python to add a toggle option to the menu that adresses the mirror tag.
In my case i selected the material of all 300+ clones together and used the mirror tag. So it wasn’t a lot of work after all.
But just like being able to select a complete directory, an option to mirror them in one go would be nice.
