xref disappearing when reopening files
« on: December 02, 2020, 11:33:28 AM »
Hi,
I'm facing this problem: i made a simple scene, just 1 xref model of a tree and a forest object scattered on a plane,using scattered distribution map. Everything is fine while i'm working but the next time I opened the file the geometry disappears. The forest object is still in the scene, the custom geometry is too but I can't see them!

Any ideas for fixing this problem??

Just to be clear, I have a regular Itoo licence for forest pro. I'll attach some picture for the before and after the problem facing.

Hi, welcome to the forum.
Would You please attach a max file to check it?

file "011_vray" is the native file for the xref tree, file "bug" is the forest object

Thank you!

You are using xref scene, not xref object. May I ask, why ?

Because with drag and drop into the scene I can choose open file, merge file and xref file..so I choose xref. Maibe can be a solution to use Xref object importing the old fashion way?

How did You pick that xrefed scene in the "before" scene ?
We recommend using xrefed objects, not xrefed scenes as scattering items.

It works!!

I pick up the tree as a Xref Object, saved and opened the file two times and the forest geometry are still there.

Thank you very much for your help and you're fast response!

Have a nice day.
