can`t use "display as box" when i use "points cloud"
« on: July 23, 2013, 06:28:37 PM »
hi,
i face the problem, that can`t use "display as box" anymore on an forest object when i use "points cloud" display. When i use the "proxy display" it works like a charm.
could this be a problem with my graficcard (gf gtx 680) or am i missing something?
i am on forest pro 3.9.6
3dsmax 2013 64bit

thanks!

This is normal because the Point-cloud is an implementation specific of Forest, not a standard Max drawing mode. Some display combinations would not work.

Before i changed the computer i worked on a pc with 3dsmax 2012 and a 3.x.x version of forest pack. In this combination there was no problem to use "points cloud" with "display as box"

It would be a limitation of the Nitrous driver. We'll take a look to it, but i'm afraid we have little control over this part of Max.
