Dissapearing trees and splashes
« on: October 07, 2011, 12:48:50 PM »
I´m making an animation of medieval landscape and I've got some issues that i can´t resolve.

I've attached two files that illustrate my problem.

The first one is a x-ref castle with  trees made in separate file and attached to the scene, and we can see some splashes and flickering in the render.

In the second one, we can see some trees made with forest pro that disappears in some frames.

This was made with 3dsmax design 11, and vray 1.5 sp6.

Any suggestion how to fix this issues.

Thanks in advance

The flickering of the first video seems to be caused by the GI. Anyways, i suggest to isolate the problem, rendering only some objects at time (specially the terrain).

About the disappearing trees, we need to check it. Please, send us a scene including that Forest object and the minimal objects to reproduce the problem (as the surface, splines, camera, lights and so).

Thanks for the tips.
About the disappearing trees, i´ve already discover the cause. The problem was the density falloff option in camera roll-out. When i turn it off, the trees stop disappearing.
