Creating Forest Object form Library
« on: March 02, 2013, 10:41:14 AM »
Hi,

I dont understand why Forest allways uses Xrefed Objects and xrefed materials even if the library is set to merge into scene.

Since i had big problems during Network Rendering and i had to merge all elements manually i dont want to work with xrefs.

I really dont know what i am doing wrong.

I am also unable to select my prefered preset material, the selection bar is allways greyed out

Plz help me out with this Issues



Best regards

Björn

The objects all allways inserted by XRef in some of the HQPlants libraries. We just take account of this issue, it will be solved in the next patch of the software. 

As workaround, you can apply a manual XRef merge after importing, with the "Merge to Scene" in the Xref Object window.

Regarding to the material selection bar, it is disabled because we need to update the HQCatalog package must be updated for Forest 4. Actually the library works in automatic mode, selecting the best fit material for your current selected renderer. This issue will be also fixed soon.

Looking forward for a fix sooner or later.
