updating materials in tree library
« on: April 23, 2015, 03:43:12 PM »
I have create a library of trees, and created a forest from my tree library

When i have updated the materials in my tree library the update does not carry on down to my forest, even if i delete the trees from my forest and add them as a new item it seems to remember the existing materials.
i can how ever create a new forest within a new max file with the same trees and this then uses the new materials.
Is there any kind of work around?

Sounds like your Library Browser's On Duplicate Material option is set to Use scene material instead of Replace from Library (attaching screenshot). Switching to that mode (Replace from Library / Ask to user) should fix that.

Kind regards,
