Foest Object doesn't load with scene
« on: March 20, 2019, 11:32:29 AM »
I still have a strange problem. Sometimes when I load up a scene with a forest inside, some forest objects get loaded and some not. The "F" symbol is only shown. I have to select it plus go to "modify" tab. Then the point clouds show up.

Furthermore the Density is set from "Full" to "Dense". I definitely set it properly to "Full" because I did a render with it the day before.
 
Using Forst Pro 6.1.7 with Octane 2018.1 and 3dsmax 2019 latest SP.

Hi Michael,

Sorry to hear, you're facing these troubles. It sounds like the issue reported in the "FP instances disappearing when reopening scene" thread. Are you using the General > Presets feature? If you'll be able to reproduce it on a minimal scene, which you can send us, it would be great. Thanks in advance for any further comments on this issue you can share with us.

Best regards,

Michael Betke

I use a general-preset named "default" to have it as a start when creating a new forest. I set the "dense" map as default there too, plus some translation values. But in all cases I edit this default preset further.

I will sent scene when I run into the problem again.

I would like to follow up on this one.
I need to batch render 20 files which are prepared and the Production render stops because I get a pop-up with the Forest error.
Really in need of a solution to be able to render overnight without errors.
