Axis orientation changed?
« on: September 15, 2017, 10:57:25 AM »
I just upgraded to FPP540.

Its difficult for me to explain, but is it right that something changed with the axis orientation.

If I rotate my reference box, the scattered ForestPack boxes are rotating as well. In the last version I had to rotate the Gizmo/Axis. Does FFP not uses the Z-Axis as Normal/Up anymore?

I hope its just a new checkbox I didnt find right now.

Max2017/2018 FFP540

Best Regards Carsten

Thanks for getting in touch. To my knowledge nothing has changed. Forest pack takes the orientation by sampling the model in world space, the actual orientation of the pivot is ignored. Here's the same behaviour in Forest Pack 4.4

I hope that helps clear things up, please let me know if you have any further questions.

Many Thanks,
