Title: FP 7 / Vray 5 - Rendergin stuck on Updating instances of forest object
Post by: GF1991 on February 12, 2021, 01:15:04 AM
Hi guys,
so today, out of the blue, the forect pack object i had in the scene stopped rendergin.
I can restart computer, turn on off, reinstal vray/FP7Beta - anything and it still doesnt render and completely freezes max and there is no core /RAM/network activity too..please see attachment.
Doesnt return any error upon force closing max.
Whne i hide FP objects it renders fine.
When i go to scene 5 saves back it still doesnt work.
Does aynone have any clue what could be wrong there?
I am out of ideas..cant be that all my saves are all of the sudden FP corrupted??? Wondergin why even reinstalling doesnt work.
Thanks for suggestions
Martin

Oh I am sorry i forgot to reply as i was too busy catching the deadline ans still am :)))

Anyway, i was advised to tick off the collisions which were for some reason on by default and then i lowered the threshold to make the grass denser.
And it helped.

Strangely it started erroring like that by itself and i checked the scene that rendered well and the collisions were checked but few saves after that it stopped rendering....so really unsure what happened there.

Thanks a lot to the support team advice :)

I am on the same situation, but for the rush, I have to revert back to fp6 and it is rendering now.    I am going to test it again to see if that solution works for me
thanks!

looks like the collisions in beta are extremely sensitive to the forest obejcts density.
has anything changed in that regard from 6 to 7???
ïts quite tricky cos the display doenst display all the items so one never knows how thick the forest object actually is.

Yes collisions has been modified. There was a bug that was fixed in FP 7.
Now it should work more consistently. You can increase display items, or set it to 0 to make it unlimited (be careful when using in large distribtions).

I have everything set neatly but i am gettgin crashes to desktop everytime i stop IPR render in Vray.
I am packing up the scene and sending over. Tried different Vray versions, looks like its related to FP object cos that was the last one added.
Cheers

When you see other mentioning that they really hope this gets fixed and are replying on it for time critical work, you have to ask, why would anyone install a beta, when everyone knows that doing so, can and often does bring with it, unexpected problems. Yes it's a good thing that some are wiling to give a beta release a try and help find problems, many companies rely on it, but if you need it to be stable and your work replies on it, I would suggest not using a beta for time critical work

I just wanted to express my gratitude to everyone who installed beta, and took their time to report the issues.

hi rokas, so, it is safe to say that this is fixed on the stable version?
