Questions regarding Forest Color map
« on: March 14, 2022, 12:37:06 PM »
Hello forum!

I have a question regarding the "forest Color" map in 3ds max and vray.

I have 4 pine trees with the same multimaterial. Their needles have a forest color map with 4 different diffuse maps assigned to different  probabilities inside forest color. I have some green needles at 100% and some more brown yellowish at 30-40% and its set to Get ID from Element. I dont have any tint in the forest color map, and yet its assigning the maps not per element but it seems like its per item, it makes a whole tree brownish and then another green.

Any ideas to why this is?

Thanks a lot!

Hi,

Thanks for the question.

Are you by any chance using proxies? There's a technical limitation with those that randomise by element isn't supported. If that's the case, importing or X-Reffing the mesh should fix the issue.

Thanks,

Paul
