multiple geometry probability problem
« on: January 08, 2013, 03:17:30 PM »
Hi!

I'm using forestpack pro 3.9.5 on Max 2013 64bit.
I'm having problems with more than one geometry objects on my forest object.
In my geometry list I've 2 different pieces of geometry both have  probability percentage set to 50%,
only the top item from the list will show in the viewport and renders.
It doesn’t matter if I use billboards or custom objects, the second object will not appear.
Am I doing something wrong or is this a bug?

Some extra information.
The forest object was created by selecting (mode custom edit) points from a xref cad drawing.

This behaviour is normal, because once created an item in Custom Edit mode, it keeps the Geometry ID unless the user modifies it.

To randomize the geometry, go to Tree Editor, select all items (in sub-object mode) and click the "Randomize" button.
