Hi everyone,
 I have an issue with the interactive mode of Corona Renderer with Itoo Forest Pack. When I'm working with heavy scenes and I try to pan view in interactive mode and in isolate view, 3ds Max freezes for couple of minutes. I investigated it, and found out that Corona interactive mode with Itoo Forest Pack cause the freezing of 3ds max. It's happening only when I try to pan view in isolate view. It seems that corona is trying to load all of Itoo Forest Pack instances even if I isolate just one independent object from all scene. I created simple scene to check if others will experience the same problem. I'm sure it's not my computer problem, because I tried this in two different computers, results are equal. But I'm not sure if this is Corona or ItooSoft fault. I have latest Itoo Forest Pack plugin and 2017 3ds Max.
Could anyone please check on this simple scene if any of you experience this behavior too?

Please, be sure you have Max 2017 updated to the latest update.
This problem has been reported in other Max versions, and was caused by a bug which is fixed in recent service packs:

MAXX-30316    Slow node creation / modifier application in complex scene

We cannot reproduce the problem here (Max 2017 SP3 + Hotfix 1).
There is a delay of of 5-8 sec. with some events (not 2 min.), because the Forest object must be rebuilt. That's normal because there are 2.7 mill. of scattered items:

Please note that using Interactive Render, Forest is computing the number total of items for render, not for viewport. So the performance hit may be significative.
But the 2 min. delay probably is caused by the bug described above.
