Assets not being placed fully
« on: September 15, 2015, 01:23:09 PM »
Hi. 

For some reason FP is not creating assets everywhere they should be.

I'm now using a distribution map, which I thought would solve the problem, but it hasn't. 

When I was using the purple curve, moving the curve around would still only place the assets in the same area as they're currently shown.

Does anyone know how to fix this?

Thanks.

I've just started again in a previous scene and it seems to be working ok so far this time.  Not sure what went wrong before so if anyone knows that'd be good to know.

Hi,

It's very hard to say what's causing this problem just from the provided screenshot. It might be related to your Distribution map / used Areas list.

As mentioned in our on-line reference guide:

"The areas list details all the items being used to define the scatter region. The order is important, areas are processed from the bottom of the list upwards, an exclude area will only affect areas that are below it in the geometry list."

Anyway, please feel free to send us your scene to support@itoosoft.com and we´ll check it here. In case of big file size, please use a web sharing service as WeTransfer.

Best regards,

Hi.  It's just done it with the new test.  I've just found the cause.  It's the camera 'limit to visibility' feature.  I didn't know that was on by default.

Thanks.
