Forest Pack Lite/Pro 7.0.8
« on: March 19, 2021, 09:42:02 AM »
A new update of the software is available:

Forest Pack 7.0.8

- Fixed continuous updating of Interactive Render when using Camera->"Limit to Visibility".
   * This bug would also affect general performance when camera clipping is enabled on viewport.
- Fixed: Surface->UV generates different distributions on rendering nodes with different number of threads.
- Fixed: Distribution->Reference->By Mesh may generate different random values on rebuild.
- Library Browser: fixed gaps in catalog tree after removing items.
- Fixed error loading items from Evermotion catalogs.

Forest Pack 7.0.7

- Changed the way that V-Ray proxies are rendered. Now it uses the same method of FP6.
   * Previously render of proxies was delegated to V-Ray, in a similar way to VRayInstancer. But several problems were reported.
   * If needed, VRayInstancer mode can be forced yet in the configuration (forestpack.ini), setting handleVRayProxies = 0.

Library Browser:

- Several fixes for billboard edit:
   * Added missing Center and Z-Offset gizmos.
   * Dimensions are displayed correctly, according to the scene's units.
   * Fixed aspect ratio for non-squared thumbnails.
- Fixed wrong size of billoards loaded from library (not fully fixed in 7.0.6 patch).
- List of Objects/Materials in the import dialogs now are sorted alphabetically.
- Fixed crash deleting catalogs.

Forest Pack 7.0.6

- Fixed several issues loading items from Library Browser.
- Fixed small margins editing Catalog names in the Library Browser.
- Fixed: Scene Explorer is closed before rendering non-geometric objects with some renderers.
   * Note: Scene Explorer is closed yet with Max 2015 and before. This is a workaround to avoid a crash which may happen with old Max versions.
- Distribution->Path / Reference Objects / Particle Flow parameters are not overwritten when loading Library presets.
- Camera->"Limit to Visibility" is updated on viewport only for Camera views.
- Fixed: Billboards are loaded with a wrong size from the Library Browser.
- Library Browser is reloaded when Unit's scene change. This is needed to show correctly the billboard units.

This is a maintenance patch only. You can find all new features of Forest Pack 7 here.
