The creation of the Forest Templates is definitely the issue as you can see. Could this be a problem with the user paths? Where are the templates located? Is it a network problem loading them? Maybe permissions to the folder itself?
Hi, thanks for the detailed information.
I'm checking the Forest code which creates the templates, but cannot see why it may cause such problems:
1) It creates a hidden and frozen layer to store the templates ("forest_templates").
2) Templates are loaded in the scene, reading the definition from C:\Program Files\Itoo Software\Forest Pack Pro\geometry\index.dat
(a text file), and merging the geometry from C:\Program Files\Itoo Software\Forest Pack Pro\geometry\objects\geometry1.max
The location of these files is defined by the following registry key (really it defines the main folder of Forest files):HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Itoo Software\Forest Pack Pro\MainDir
Please, check if you can merge in an empty scene the content of geometry1.max
, and the above registry key has not been modified.
