One single Roof Tile isn't being cropped by the spline!
« on: April 12, 2018, 05:35:12 PM »
As you can see from this render, a single tile is popping out. I have attached the Max 2018 scene!

Any help as to why would be much appreciated!

I had similar problem but only during render... camera 'walktrough` setup, each frame different view. Some frames renders fine some had broken geometry..

Thank You for a file attached.
I saw that tile, sticking out with older RC version, but after updating RC to newest version 3.1.3b it is now clipped correctly.

Actually, that update seems to have broken the ridge tiles and reverse the direction of their extensions.

Yeah, this update seems to have completely broken the ridge riles.

They are all extending beyond their point, have reversed, and the extend ends options seems to be a complete disaster.

I don't know how to have a short portion of ridge tile - it's all gone weird. This update seems to have broken the scene.

When will that be because I will need it within the next couple of days!

Is there a nightly available?

The update will not be ready until next week. We have not nightlies either.

Do you need some specific feature of the beta ? If not, i would suggest to install the latest stable (RC 3.1.0).
If you get an error "There are incompatible RailClone objects", just ignore it. Most of scenes should work without problems.

I'm using the beta with Vray Next beta 3 - I have accidentally put myself in a position where I need to use the vray next beta hence needing to use the railclone beta...

Unless we hcan have different versions of railclone for different installs of max - this scene for example is max 2018 vray 3.6,  but another scene is using max 2019 and vray next.

Any idea when we can expect it?

best

Funnily enough, I just saw the update myself just from random checking, and it doesn't work.

You fixed the issue with the ridge tiles, but the roofting tile not being cropped issue still persists!

Come on guys!

I'm sorry for the inconveniences, but unfortunately this is part of the beta process.
The RC core is very complex, and any change in the code may affect to other parts of the plugin. There is no way to predict that. Just fix, check and repeat...

Please, hold on. I'm checking the new issue.
