Adding support for Forest Pro instance ID in plugin?
« on: October 03, 2013, 03:54:08 AM »
I'd like to support FP in BerconGradient (random mode). What do I need for this? A header and lib to compile against?

I can send you the interface that Vizpark used for their Crossmap plugin.

The interface must be invoked from a material or texture plugin, usually from Mtl::Shade or Texmap::EvalColor. It requires a pointer to the current ShadeContext and the INode rendered (which must be a Forest object).

If you are interested, please tell me.

Hi

How does the cross map plugin differ from what itoo does? I looked at it but thought it would randomise I'm the same way.

Yes, Forest Color provides basically the same functionality, although Crossmap allows to load maps from a folder. But in this case Vizpark wanted to include support for Forest Pro.

Sounds great, I would love to get this!
