Some questions
« on: May 03, 2008, 06:31:19 PM »
Maybe this is writen in the help file, but please answer if possible...

1. What kind of objects can I use as custom object? I import a 3ds model of a tree... how can I use it?

2. If it is possible to use such models, then how do I make the forest trees as instances of the custom object?

Thanks in advance for any help

Hi,

1. You can use any object that have a mesh representation (almost all). It must be a single object, a group doesn't work. On the Geometry panel, select "Custom Object", click the button below it and pick the object from the scene.

Also is possible to customize the template list with our own objects, but you must edit some files:

2. Use Forest Tools from the Utilities panel:
