Find Out WHich Forest Items Your Scattering Automatiicaly
« on: January 08, 2018, 09:54:23 PM »
Hi,i dont know if this is possible. Im working on a pretty large scene with loads of scatters.

While ive been tweaking the scatters i have ended up with loads of plant / grass /tree models in the scene. Some im using some im not. As they were Maxtree objects with a code rather than a name. Is there a way to auto select which geometry items your using for that scatter rather than having to manually keep clicking and finding the object

Hi,

You can use the 3ds max's Select by Name tool and turn on Select - Select Influences. Now you can select the Forest object & related Custom Objects will be selected automatically as well.

Let me add, that you can easily select any used Custom Object via 3ds max's quad menu (right click) - Select Forest Custom Object.

Hope that helps.

Best regards,
