I really want to know about these, I would not like to guess about these.
1. I clone the forest via Maxscript command "TGT=copy $forest001 ; TGT.name="my Copied forest"". So all the setting including sample objects, spline objects, aera objects, random seed, and etc all should be the same as the object named "forest001" exactly . Just copy it in place, DO NOT MOVE ,ROTATE OR SCALE IT A BIT.
My question is: Will I get exact the same forest in my copied object "my Copied forest" ? Especially, the forest random color and the position , rotation and scale of each tree.
2.For example, I create a new forest object named "forest002". Do all setting manually. Then each setting of (all source objects and all value) forest object will be the same as the setting of " forest001". Will I get the exact the same Forest in "forest002" ? Especially, the forest random color and the position , rotation and scale of each tree.
3. If I group all the related objects of my forest object such as spline objects, surface objects, collision objects and etc except the sample tree objects, can I move or rotate the forest without changing the forest a bit (the forest random color and the position , rotation and scale of each tree exactly the same) ?
4.When I change the sample tree objects(for example, A tree and B tree are changed to C tree D tree), will the transform (the position , rotation and scale of each tree) of all the trees change a bit ? This is very important for my animation shots.
All the question are about Grenerate mode not Custom edit mode in Tree editor.
