XRef Forest Objects not rendering
« on: March 07, 2017, 08:01:56 PM »
If I'm reading previous posts correctly I should be able to XRef a forest object from another file and render it fine.  I'm fairly certain I have done this previously.  Right now I cannot get it to work.  XRef scene works but XRef Objects does not.  There are no errors.  If I merge it into the scene it renders.

I'm using FP 5.2.0 Max 2017 and Mental Ray.

Thanks for reporting this issue. We're able to reproduce this problem of referenced Forest object as a XRef Object using the mental ray renderer (other render engines doesn't seem to suffer this kind of troubles). Our main developers will have a look at it, but let me mention, that we're now very busy working on the upcoming RC3. The XRef Scene would be currently the recommendable option. Thanks for your comprehension.

Again, big thanks for your feedback.

Best regadrs,
