No velocity channel with animated trees.
« on: October 05, 2015, 06:51:43 PM »

Suddenly it appears that Forest Pack generates no velocity channel. I try to render forest with animated trees (wind animation) with motion blur. Actually I try to extract a velocity channel for motion blur at the post production. What can I do?

Hi, i'm checking this issue and it seems we have to do several changes in the V-Ray shader, to support  motion blur and velocity channel on animated objects.
Apologies by that. We'll prioritize this task, so it's available for the next Forest update.

Until then i'm afraid there is not any workaround, except convert Forest to instances using Forest Tools.
Since Forest Tools cannot translate the random animation offset, i suggest to create several custom objects with different offsets, and randomize them in Forest. In this way, the result will be identical once converted to stand-alone instances.

I hope that helps.
