Delay on selecting forest object
« on: April 28, 2015, 07:52:26 PM »
I'm experiencing a frustrating delay every time I select a forest object when the modifier panel is open in 3dsmax 2015 sp3.
If I have the command panel set to one of the other tabs (display, create, etc) there is no delay. It is as though the forest object is getting stuck checking for a new version, or instantiating the UI.
Is this to be expected? or is this a bug / local issue ?

Thanks
p.

No, that delay is not normal and we have not similar issues reported.
Although the Forest Modifier panel is a bit heavy, it should not take more than one second to display. Regarding the new versions checking, it runs on the background and only one time by day, so should not cause problems.

Have you noticed this problem with other Max / Forest versions, or does it happen only with Max 2015 ?

Please, also see this post and check if you have some Java application running on background. That would be problem.

Oh, interesting, I'll investigate the java issue.
My problem fixed itself with a reboot, so perhaps it was a java related slowdown.
Thanks!
