Turn all my objects into one forest in one time ?
« on: October 01, 2015, 06:00:10 AM »
Hi iToosoft,
I have many different animated objects(They are not instances. They have different animation too.) I want to turn them into one forest object because I want to use the "Forest Color Map". I want to make this forest object as quickly as possible. And I want to make the world transforms of the objects and animation in the forest are exactly the same as before the objects turned into the forest object.
Please tell me how to do this ?

Hi,

I'm afraid, there is no "one click" solution for this task. You can Add multiple Custom Objects and then under Creation Tools - Reference Objects place them to corresponding world coordinates.

Hope that helps.

Best regards,

"Forest color Map" is really good for randomizing color for many objects. Why not develop a converter to convert some ordinary objects to forest pro object in one click ? Can I batch add  some objects in Forest pro and set each transform of the "trees" in Forest pro  via MaxScript ? Can you give me an example that batch import objects and set each transform in MAXscript ?

Hi,

Please find attached "ObjectsToForest" script that'll automatize that process (add items & place them to source object's position). Use the Select Objects to pick all objects that should be inserted into the new "AutoForest" object. Than by clicking the AutoForest button, it'll create a new Forest object with all those objects with transformations corresponding to its "source objects".

Hope it'll be a good time saver for your task.

Best regards,

Yeah ! This is exactly what I want. I'll try this script in my project. Thank you very much, Michal Karmazín .  This will be a huge time saver in my project.
