sooooooo any ideas on the V2 issue of the buildings "clumping" instead of randomizing position like in the tut? I really want to use this pack, but it is NOT a time saver if I have to make 30 layers to place the buildings inna "random" manner.

When you add buildings like in the tutorial it doesn't randomize them, but if you use the city blocks, it will work. I hope this isn't how it is supposed to work in Ev2. Hope it gets fixed soon.

Having this same issue, if you use the pre-made city blocks it will work somewhat.

I can't get this to work with E3D 2.0? It seems that the random seed doesn't work the same way? I have all of the models showing up in the same place instead of randomizing?

I'm having the same problem. In E3D2 I selected 7 buildings, and in AE, following your steps, results in 50 iterations of my stack of buildings, as opposed to 50 random buildings. Any help would be great.

How do I create the "Scanning" effect at 00:56 of the tutorial 136. Metro City.

Pretty sure its achieved by using the 'FOCUS' channel or something similar on E3D output settings. Duplicate the instance of E3D then composite the effect on top animating the focus distance. Worth a go....
