Scale size of specific item?
« on: November 05, 2014, 09:00:32 AM »
Hello,

I need to populate a large area and I added all trees in the same FP object from User library.
The issue is that there is a one specific tree which is over-sized, and I need to scale it down a little bit.
I can't find a way to scale it down without scaling the all other items.

Any suggestions?

Forest Pro 4.2.5

Hi,

For this purposes we have introduced in the beta version a new feature - local Scale adjustment (Geometry->Use Object Dimensions is replaced by local Scale parameter). This way you can adjust independently any Geometry list item, if it's not properly scaled. Attaching screenshot. Please feel free to download the upgrade from the User Panel->Beta versions.

Also please note, that you are able to scale any of scattered items by using the Custom Edit mode. So you can tweak every scattered item independently (as on the attached screenshot the letter C).

Kind regards,

Thank you for your reply.
I am aware of the custom edit mode, but I have literally hundreds of trees to scale down this way.

Then I will be looking forward for the new release :)
Is there a release date?

Hi,

Actually, we have no release date set yet. It'll be soon, most probably in next few weeks. Until then the beta version is available.

Meanwhile, there is possible quick workaround by scaling the source object - for example by applying and scaling the XForm modifier's gizmo.

Kind regards,
