From scatter to points in .gdb for visibility analysis?

I’m struggling a little here. I’m trying to create a building with a visibility factor, and I’m reading thru the 3D city analysis document, with gave me the idea of randomly creating points, to create the visibility analysis inside ArcScene.

In the 3D city analysis doc, it describes that when exporting the model, I need to make sure that I have a feature mapping field where I could choose “One Feature Per Leaf Shape.” I don’t seem to have that function in 2014, am I right?

My idea was to create points with the scatter operation, so I didn’t need to set a visibility point inside arcscene, so I would need it to export to points as well, but as this moment I can only export it as a Multipatch, which I’m not able to use with my geoprocessing tools.

Am I on the right track, or is there an easier way to create those points, to create a visibility analysis?25-08-2014 16-03-31.png
