I was just playing around with FP8 and as a developer the new From Layers option of Forest Set makes me a bit nervous :) Just looks like this could potentially create all kinds of dependency issues in combination with other features and plugins. Anyway, found this crash during my tests:

Create a Layer "Test" with some simple objects
Created a Forest Set and added the layername "Test" to it.
Made a Forest object using the new Forest Set as geometry source.
In layer manager dragged Forest Set into layer Test. (makes no sense, this was a test)

Result: Lots of error messages popping up and 3ds max crashing (Lots of MAXScript call stack overflow errors until Maximum Nester Error Dialog Depth Reached).

Regards,
Daniel Schmidt

Hi Daniel,

Thanks for reporting this issue.
Usually Max takes cares of circular references when picking objects, but for layers we should it manually. We'll take a look to it.
