Hi Feng,

Could you please send that basic scene to us at helpdesk@itoosoft.com? It's hard to identify the issue from a screenshot, but it might be that the tree is a group. I'd also recommend contacting Maxtree. The issue is something that will almost certainly need to be fixed on their side.

Cheers,

Paul

Hi Feng,

Thanks for the file. I can see the issue is caused by using Edge Boundary Checking mode. In this mode, elements that extend beyond the spline are removed. Whether an element is removed or not is determined by the location of its lowest vertex. What can happen with trees is that all the leaves are removed, but the branch, whos lowest vertex is still inside the area, is retained. To fix it, change the Boundary Checking mode to Size or Point.

I hope that helps,
Paul
