thank you for the reply. Sounds good.
I am very close to buying Forest Pack Pro...but also still looking at Groundwiz and MultiScatter.
The biggest thing that scares me is the license system and reading from various sources it is causing with legitimate owners and non-legitimate owners. I am reading that if the license system detects something wrong with a license, be it genuine or not, it converts the forests created, to "invisible" meshes and their is NO GOING BACK TO GET ALL THAT WORK BACK?
? That would NOT be a good thing for us the client, maybe so for the developer, but NOT us the client with projects and $$$$$ at stake.
Is this problem in fact real among buying customers or not? If so, is it fixed or will it be fixed? I am looking for a system to start out with on the right foot and never have to worrry about down the road of a major nuisance like that. ALso need peace of mind, that after a few years, I can open a file created, and the forest is still the same... i guess the main reason I wish a forest program like this was built into 3ds max and part of it. Plugins have a way of "locking" one in.
If the license system does decide to take liberty and ruin a file by converting all forest objects to invisible meshes for whatever reason..... will we be able to get those "forests" back easily by contacting the developer for help...or have to in fact start from scratch? I hope not. I personally do NOT like software that does things like this and is actually DESTRUCTIVE. In a way for protection or not....acts quite like a virus to me on my work.... and even paid for it do so?
Before deciding, please let me know if this is in fact true or not... as I have read about this here in this forum and also around other forums. Thank you!
