Importing AI as Splines error
« on: November 18, 2014, 09:57:45 PM »
I've got a simple logo in Illustrator and import to 3ds max as illustrator version 8. This creates the splines perfectly. When selecting one of the closed spline objects as the forest area it just shows the 'F' symbol. The spline is perfect without any overlaps and is completely closed. Is this method not supported?

Any kind of Shape (Splines, NURBS Curves) is supported. Please check General - Statistics window (Forest Stat). There should be on the bottom explication why the Forest object is shown as an icon.

It could be related to the size of the spline, so the Density (Distribution Map settings) of scattered objects should be adjusted to correct values for your scene.

Kind regards,
