newbie question
« on: July 10, 2012, 10:29:21 AM »
Hi everyone, I just bought a copy of forest park pro. when I choose a  plane as distribution surface and chose the objects to distribute, I notice that some objects are scattered below the plane and some on top. How do I remove the ones under?

Thanks for your help.

What type of surface distribution do you use, XY or UV ? 

With the XY surface (recommended for terrains), the items should be scattered on top only. Instead, the UV mode uses the normal of the surface. So, in this case is possible that some normals are flipped.

In any case, if you send us a test scene we would check it.

thanks for the quick response, just realized the issue was the position of the pivot point in the proxy object. when i moved it from the centre of object to base, it worked perfect...

surface mode was on xy [default]
