Suggested New Feature - Wind
« on: August 11, 2009, 03:20:13 PM »
We have 2 licenses using Vray sp3a with Max 2010 and love the product, so much so we have stopped using Vray Scatter !

The 1 new feature we really need now is WIND . . . with speed, velocity and direction applied to all Forest Pro objects in the same scene. Yes we know you can animate a single mesh and using Forest Pro animate a field but when you apply random rotation  the wind goes in all directions and for our large animation scenes we need wind. Especially for when we produce large property estates and tropical beach house scenes.

I truly believe that if you can solve provide a Wind Panel your product will be as good as Vue Xstream 7.5 or Speed Tree . . . are you developing WIND further ? ? ?

Thanks for the suggestion, but i'm afraid that this is one of the most difficult features to develop. Mainly, because each tree must be deformed in a different way to get acceptable results. It's much more easy for Vue or Speed Tree, since they are using their own tree models.

However, i put it in the wishlist. Perhaps, we would to find some viable solution.
