adding objects just by painting?
« on: October 01, 2015, 12:26:51 PM »

sorry, this might be a noob question.

normally i just add forest pro objects by selecting an object / face.

but what if i only need objects on a small part of the surface?

right now i select the whole terrain, add objects (that's a lot of objects), and then use the paint tool to remove objects (lot of work).
is it possible to do the opposite - just paint where i want the objects?

Yes, that's possible - for these purposes use the Paint Area in the Include mode. Just please double check, that the Surface Area isn't switched On (and covering the whole surface which would "double" the distribution).

Let me add, that a "Surf Mat.ID" feature is already supported (since the Forest Pack Lite/Pro 4.3.3 - Added Areas->Limit by Surface Material ID.). You can find more about it in our "To limit the scatter using material" section of our on-line reference guide.

Hope that helps.

Best regards,
