scatterObj is for distributing objects across any poly surface, this script is very easy to use and it help you scatter objects quickly. it uses the surface vertex to spread the objects on, so if you want more objects on the surface you need to increase its poly count and vice versa. and it give you random rotation and scale so you don't get identical trees, grass, hair or what ever you are using.


1) Make sure that your source geometry "tree" pivot point is in the right position.                        
2) Select the surface first and then select the object you want it to be scattered last.


1) Copy the script to Maya script folder .
2) Open Maya and in the script editor load the script and then select the script and add it as "Mel" button to your shelf.



- Align To Surface: Tick this button if you want the objects to follow the orientation of the surface, like for hair or grass.

- Translation: You can adjust the value to get random results in the translation X and Z.

- Rotation: You can adjust the value to get random results in the rotations X Y Z.

- Scale: You can adjust the value to get random results in the scale X Y Z.

Note: This is my first script guys so please take it easy on me, and please let me know what you think!! i'm willing to improve it and make it for maya 2008 and 2009.
