I couldn't find this mentioned anywhere else so I thought I'd post it:
I ran through the tutorial on how to make hedges and successfully made a very nice hedge. I created a forest library item and pointed it to the forest hedge object. I opened a scene that I want to put hedges in and apply the library preset to the object in my project, but it doesn't look like the one I made just earlier! I have a little dig around and discover that some of the settings, although definitely there in the master scene, and therefore should transfer through the library, they just don't come in to the project scene.
The only thing to note is that I created the forest master in Max 2016 and then the project is in Max 2017, but I wouldn't have thought that mattered as it's just internal forest settings that are lost.
Can anyone shed any light on the subject?
