6.3 to 7.4 update path distribution difference
« on: July 13, 2022, 11:06:50 AM »
Hello,

We have just update from FPpro 6.3.1 to 7.4.2 on our renderfarm, and we got a really big difference on objects ditributed by path method. Is there a way to randomise the element the same way  to have the possibility to update existing sequence ?

Thanks by advance for help

Hi,

Thanks for the message. I'm afraid that although we try as much as possible to maintain full compatibility between version, due to the implementation of some new features and changes to the core, it isn't always possible. One option might be to open the scene using the old version of Forest Pack, "bake" the scatter by switching to Item Editor mode, and then save it again.

Hope that helps.
Paul

I should add, i just tried to bake items from Path Distribution to Custom Edit mode, and it doesn't preserve current transformations, at least in FP7. We must check this.

If this option doesn't work, you can bake them using Forest Tools. I tested it, and works fine.
