6.2.3 Bug- forest ojects dont render in Automatic Mode
« on: February 14, 2020, 10:30:00 AM »
After installing 6.2.3 tpday, forest objects stopped rendering.
First thought there was a license issue and re-activated the license.

But that didnt solve the problem.
Now the forest objects are visible in the viewport but not rendered.

Under display panel/Render parameters
If mode is set to Auto, items are not rendered.
If the mode is Meshes, they are rendered.

3DS Max 2014 Vray Next update 3.1

Just installed Forest Pack Pro 6.2.3

Same problem with Forest Pack Pro as Alfa Smyrna. However, their suggestion of switching the Render mode to Meshes instead of the default Automatic, does not work. I tried it

What I have discovered what does work, with any scene that uses FP., The FP objects do not render if using IPR. However if you instead hit Render, FP objects render perfectly.

IPR was working fine in 6.2.2 and it's incredibly useful and you can even move FP objects around, interactively. Something that (obviously) isn't possible, if the FP objects do not rendering with IPR. While I know IPR is not the ideal way to render a scene with FP and certainly not with Railcone as interactivity of any sort, is just not possible with Railcone and IPR, I do find it most annoying, that everything was working fine with IPR and now this.

So my guess is, whatever you did that "Added specific support for V-Ray 4.3" is the problem, because as far as I could tell, it was working just fine with 4.3, until now of course.

While IPR might not be to everyone's liking, it is a vital part of my workflow and I imagine many others too, so hopefully you can get this sorted ASAP

I have exactly the same problem with 6.2.3  as a previous post by user FC1888. Does not render Forest pack objects in IPR mode. It 's just very necessary for me. Fix this problem please.
My soft is 3d max 2016, V-ray Next update 3.1

Agreed. I can confirm IPR is now working well. Apologies for that.

Please, hold on. We're checking it.

Hello there, I am very sorry for my late reply.

I had to switch back to 6.2.2 because my timeline was tight.

I am happy that the bug is recovered in the newest buildand  I will install it now.

Thank you very much.
