Tree mode and MAX script problem with latest FP update
« on: August 10, 2012, 10:07:05 AM »
Hi

Width/Height settings for tree mode (for individual trees) seems to have been hidden in the latest versions? This is not a huge problem, but now the maxscript interfaces .trees.create and/or .trees.setSize seem to give erroneous results; the resulting trees are not created with the exact values given to these interfaces, but rather seem scaled (no transforms are used in the Transform section, and the individual transform matrix of each tree appear to be the default unity matrix) ???

We use customized scripts with FP in our production all the time, so I hope you can help us with this

Best Regards

Ramboll

I apologize by the inconveniences. We have modified the behaviour of the Custom Edit in the latest versions (now the size is not absolute, it depends of the Geometry List values), but it seems the Maxscript interface is not working well with these changes.

We are working in a emergency patch. Please, tell me your Max version and i will send you a fix as soon as possible.

Please, check your e-mail inbox. I just sent you the custom patch.

It is not necessary to install it in all nodes, only where you use Maxscript. If you find some problem, please tell me.

Argh ! We used the fixed Maxscript functions in 3.9.5, but there was a new bug in trees.create.  :(

I'm sorry a lot. I just sent you a patch by e-mail.
