super comments...thank you...I'll play with them over the weekend...but can't help but ask one or two more!
I also own vue xstream (and am largely abandoning it as a result of your software)...BUT...in this project, I happen to need a lot of Bamboo Trees...and vue does a nice job of creating a bamboo grove .. what would be the right approach to get it into Forest Pack- my choices are:
1) export a large poly mesh of bamboos (1,000,000 poly's) to max as a .3ds and use them independently?
2) somehow convert the large poly thing to a billboard (how to do that?)
3) skip this approach entirely and use some other library that has a variety of bamboo textures and add them to the forest pack library (any suggestions?)
4) something completely different?
I don;t want to use the vue xstream integration as its too buggy and bogs down the max environment too much.
