Fast SSS - I go nuts
« on: April 15, 2015, 09:45:54 AM »
Hy,

i got an scene where i use one forest object with the daisy 02 large preset in it.
i like to render it on rebus farm but manager is responding that there is an fast sss mat in the scene (trunk).

1. with the slate mat editor i searched for *trunk....nothing shows up
2. when i get the mat from forest i only see fp-trunk (i don't know why this isn't showing up in my search)
3. when i look into the mats there is nothing like an fast sss

ideas?

thx

Found a solution!

It was made with an old Forestpack...and the forest was hidden without geometry

Hi,

Glad to hear, that you found the source of that issue. I've been double checking current presets (Forest Pack Lite/Pro 4.3.7) and I can confirm, that as posted here all these materials are now "VRayMtl".

Kind regards,

For all who also struggle with these scenes in future

Workaround:
1. download http://www.scriptspot.com/3ds-max/scripts/modifier-modifier-zorb
2. select material, look out in the list for sss, right click on it -> select object -> delete
3. with the compact material editor open go to utilities -> condense materials
4. Go to layers open layer  -> forest templates -> delete object from old forest!

nice day and keep foresting! ;-)

edit: LOL 5 minutes after writing this i tried it on the next scene and it doesn't work....10 mins later i found the solution...i forget point 3. haha ;-)
