When I use object mapping and use an empty to position decals on objects, the relationship is not preserved in linked instance of the group of objects. Is there a way to force the decals to stay in their original location?
Let me explain:
On the left we have a cube and an empty. The blender logo on the cube is positioned using the object coordinates of the empty. Now I grouped the cube and empty, and created a group instance on the right. As you can see in the rendered preview the position of the decal on the linked cube is not the same as the original. Is there a way to make it so?
P.S. Using UV's is an obvious way but as in my particular use-case I have an array of cubes, I will have to apply the array to use UV's. Object coordinates help keep a non-destructive workflow.
