PIVOT problem
« on: May 27, 2016, 05:58:38 PM »
Hello.
I am having a problem with pivot center in some objects.
Object are tree meshes with pivot on the base of the tree. But when I scatter using forest pack, it doesn´t use the pivot point of the object, but rather the selection point center.
How can I fix this?
I´ve used forest pack a lot for years in 3dsmax 2012 and never had this problem. Now I´m using forestpack pro 5.0.2b with 3dsmax2016.
Maybe it´s a 3dsmax issue, since I´m having strange behaviors of the gizmo when trying to modify the pivot. 

Thank You for your help.

Hi, please try reloading the scene.
We've found recently a bug in FP 5 which cause that Forest doesn't update with certain changes in Custom Object (as rotation, scale or pivot offset).

Once reloaded, the Custom Object cache is updated, and objects should be aligned correctly. If not, please send us a test scene, because it would be a different problem.

This problem is already fixed for the next update.

Thank you, reloading the scene worked.
I have a question, My subscription has ended recently, so to get the UPDATED version without the bug, I have to renew it, right? Or is this working version a fix file that I can download?

Yes, you must renew the subscription. We include all changes and fixes only in the most recent version.
