Forest animated custom object doesn't render.
« on: January 29, 2020, 06:28:57 PM »
Hi,

I was following the Randomising Procedural Objects with Forest Pack (intermediate) tutorial and for some weird reason the animated forest object items don't render at all.
The original items render fine, I see the animated item in my viewport but they render black.

I have checked units, reset xform at surface,areas, scattered geometry.
I have checked materials on all items.

Does anyone have any clue what else could it be?

PS. in the attachment I have disabled the single items to check only the animated one.
I am using 3dsmax 2020 and Corona 5.

Thanks in advance!

Unfortunately Corona is not yet supported for this feature.

Please refer to ForestPack documentation  to learn more which features are supported and which are not.

Thank you for your reply, I hope it will be supported soon because is a very handy feature.
If I just create an forest object patch without animation it will work?

Corona renderer itself is supported. Just animated geometry is not.

OK, maybe i didn't explained it properly.

I have made another Forest pack scene for test. I have 4 plants for scattering. Then I create a forest object patch which I don't animate at all.
If I try to scatter the patch in a new Forest it doesn't render neither at viewport neither at Corona Renderer. If I delete the patch and add the 4 items it renders properly.
So in order to understand it Corona isn't supported even in creating simple static patches of items?

Thank you for your time.
