Reference Mode Displays, but doesn't render
« on: October 13, 2022, 05:27:55 PM »
I'm not sure if this is a bug or if I'm randomly doing something wrong. When using reference mode to scatter trees on a street, I'll use a rail clone object to place the markers and then use Forest in reference mode to place the trees. This has been working fine, but lately it has been hit or miss. In the attached example, I can see them in the viewport but they do not render. I've looked all over the file to see what the issue is but I can't figure it out.

I'm on Forest Version 7.3.1, Max 2021 and Vray 5 update 2.3

Hi,

That’s easy to fix – the RailClone “reference object” (in your case “Z-TREEGRATE_PLACERS”)  should have the Use Instancing Engine option disabled.

Best regards,

Thanks! I knew it had to be something simple.
