Re Scale scenes...
« on: March 09, 2012, 01:26:37 AM »
Hi,
When I open up the autum scene, or the pier scene I meet a dialog box asking me to scale the scene to FEET since that's what i draw everything in. I hit rescale instead of adopting because adopting would mess up all my materials etc...

But the scene gets messed up... I am wondering if there is an easy way to rescale the scene?

And for some reason I can't open the 'path' scene, 3ds MAX Design 2012 crashes everytime I try.

With unit re-scaling there is many posibilities to broken elements from scenes. I've do some test scaling to Feets, and the tree appears if you divide by 25.4 all the sizes of distribution maps under "Density":

In any case i recomend you to use the scene using the original units to avoid problems.

About the crashing with the path scene, we are not able to reproduce it. Could you send us the crash file (.dmp) from the crash report to support@itoosoft.com ? This would be a great help for us to find the problem.
