What I'm trying to do is make an animated graph in Blender. I'm using animation nodes to generate text instances for the axis scale labels.
I'm not using 'copy from source' because when I use that, I'm not able to change the text of the object depending on the loop index, I'm just generating text instances. I have everything working fine except for the material.
This would be simple if I was using copy from source, because they could have the material of the source, but since I'm not doing that, I need a way to apply a material to the text instances in the animation node tree, and I can't see how to do this.
Can anyone help with this? Thanks in advance!
I was about to post images of my node tree to show what happens when I use 'copy from source' to answer Omar's comment below, but in the course of doing that, I found the problem. Before, when I was using copy from source, all the numbers would be the same. When I have 'deep copy' checked, then the numbers change according to the index. But, if you have 'copy full object' checked, it won't copy the material. So, the solution is to use copy from source, not use copy full object, and use deep copy. Here is my node tree in case this helps anyone. Thanks Omar!
