Forest pack_ grass rendering issue
« on: August 14, 2017, 03:55:43 PM »
Hi there,

I have a problem sometimes with rendering grass scattered with Forest Pack. I say "sometimes" because it doesn't happens all the time. With the same origin grass patch in some cases I get this error and some times with the same grass I don't get it. Also I get no warning message or error message. In the same scene I can have also trees scattered with Forest Pack but there is no issue with them. I attached a image with an example. I'm using Forest Pack 4.3.6 for 3ds Max. It is really frustrating. If anyone has encounter this issue or has some idea on what I can do please let me know, I would really appreciate it.

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

Thanks for the quick reply, unfortunately I can send the file since everything is owned by the office that I worked for, on their server and also I'm bound by a non disclosure agreement regarding any files, that is the reason why I sent only a small corner of the rendering, is the most that I'm allowed to send. What I can do is send you all the settings that I use. (V-Ray scene settings, materials used, lights settings, and Forest Pack scatter settings.

Let me know what you think.

Hi, we just noticed this post was in the Off Topic board.
I'm afraid we cannot provide support from here. Please, create a new post in the Forest Pro forum.

Besides that, Forest Pack 4.3.6 is a very old version. We have fixed many issues since that release.
We suggest your upgrade to the latest version (5.4.0).

Thanks,
