forest_automat_ material
« on: September 03, 2018, 07:37:23 AM »

sometimes when I merge forest pack object from another scene, message window pop ups. Is it something important or I can ignore it and use scene material?

You can use the Use Scene Material option without any worries - Forest keeps references to its source materials and rebuilds it before rendering.

It needs to make such "auto material", because as mentioned in our on-line reference guide: "Since any object in Max can only have one material applied, Forest Pack Pro automatically creates a Multi/Sub object material based on the materials assigned to each individual item in the Geometry List."

Best regards,
