Maximum Density ?
« on: January 12, 2015, 02:22:39 AM »

Hi,
I am curious as to what limits the maximum density ? the maximum objects, polys ?
Is it a RAM limitation or is it set in Forest pro ?
Surely its hardware and not a software limitation ?

cheers

Hi, you can see a detailed description of Maximum Density here.
We introduced these parameters to keep distributions within reasonable limits. If these values are exceeded, probably there are other ways to get it more efficiently.

Still doesn't answer my question ? Is it hardware or is forrest pro limiting the amount of instances ?

I have some scenes that I can not cover enough ground with grass.
Regardless if I have it set to only show only in camera view.

Forest is limiting the number of instances. You can increase these limits if needed, with Distribution->Max.Density and Display parameters.
What extension do you need to cover ?
