Thanks but I have really had enough, I cannot do something as simple as make a scene because the documentation is lacking.
Yes, I already know about the Stats window, but what do the stats mean ??
How do we USE the stats
Where is the explanation ?
I have read ALL your Documentation.
For example, Max. Density = what is this number ?
(for example, my scene says Max. Density = 54.1K trees in area, WHAT area
The stats also say Render items 8762
Max Density in relation to WHAT
If you make several Forest objects is each 'display' setting independent, i.e. for EACH Forest Object ?? Is this controlled for each one in the Display tab ??
For my scene, I have 3 Forest Objects, Grass, some plants in the grass (distributed) and some hand painted plants in the grass.
It took me 3 hours to work out how to RENDER the plants, but I spent 3 more hours TRYING TO work out WHY the handpainted ones are NOT viewed in the RENDER.
I still don't know...................................
For me, it's quicker to just do this in Photoshop and not waste ONE DAY on this.
PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, you must explain in documentation what is the most important area in your software, how to DISPLAY AND RENDER your objects......
From what I understand, it seems to me as though there is VERY MUCH a balance between display and render.
I need to know how to use this software and just use it, but right now, i cannot dream of being creative with it, all I am getting is very frustrated and tired.
Please explain clearly;
Max Items (in Modify Panel under Display),
And Max Density (in Stats and in Modify Panel)
And Max Faces
And Please confirm that Display panel is PER OBJECT OR for the ENTIRE SCENE ??
(for example, make a 100m x 100m plane, use distribution FULL and the stats should mean something
