Select all meshes within an rectangle


Recommended Posts


I want to get all the meshes that are visible within an rectangular area as seen from the camera and wonder what's the best solution to archive that. The user should be able to select an (2D) area and get all the meshes visible within it, like you can select multiple files in your file browser. 

I was thinking about:
- calculating the 2D coordinates for every object and checking their values, or
- using activeMeshes or something like that in some way without having to iterate though every object (getting the list without checking the 2D coordinates myself) 

Or is there any very easy way I didn't think yout? Maybe an already existing routine?

Thanks :)
