Forest Pack 7 Much Slower than Previous Version
« on: April 01, 2021, 07:11:59 PM »
As the title suggests really, I'm opening scenes that were previously using the last version.  I'm struggling to get them rendering at all.  The issue seems to be with object/spline/forest EXCLUDES.  I basically have some grass, that is using another Forest Pack as an exclude with a falloff so it fades to soil as it reaches the other forest pack, two splines as an exclude and some geometry as an exclude.  It takes an age to update if adjust any of the exclude items.  I've tried reducing Global and Local display settings, tried limiting visiblity, tried setting a Global Density falloff all to reduce the number of items.  It worked fine with the previous version but this one is really slow and laggy.  Max 2021 + Latest Corona Stable Release (not daily)

For what it's worth, I have no time to simplify a scene and send it over etc, so unfortunately I'm going to roll back to the previous version until the latest one drastically improves.

Uninstalled FP7 reinstalled 6.  Opened the scene, didn't change a thing, pressed render and it renders straight away.

Hi. I am sorry to hear that You are facing these issues.
We would like to get Your scene and troubleshoot it.
Anyway it does sound like a collision issue we fixed in the last FP version 7.0.9. Would You please confirm You were using it.
If this is an issue with 7.0.9 we kindly ask You send us the scene so we can get to the bottom of it.

Thanks!

I was on 7.0.8, I really don't have time at the minute to be installing/uninstalling and zipping scenes up etc.  I should be able to do it in the next couple of weeks.
