RailClone Pro (*) / Can "any" forest geometry be converted to a Billboard?
« Last post by RobH2 on March 18, 2019, 11:22:39 PM »
I'm probably mistaken but I thought I read once that any Forest objects could be converted or turned into Billboards. I have some grass and changed the 'Template' to 'Two Planes' and that's what I get, two planes of green. There is no alpha so, therefore, no plant shape.

I need to render reflections of trees and grass in a river surface but don't want to render the forest object in high resolution. The renders are about 15-minutes each.

If I can't set the forests to render as Billboards, is there a workflow that I can use to get the plants reflections without having to do the really long renders?

Forest Pro (*) / LIBRARY PRESET LAWNS QUALITY
« Last post by ticosimmer on March 18, 2019, 03:42:22 PM »
Hi,
When I use the preset lawns, I get a very poor non realistic result (I'm using Vray).  I have inserted the vray textures in the presets.  But the result is a flat non realistic green looking lawn, very uniform, without imperfections or translucency.  I did the experiment with the itoo grass tutorial, and the result is a great looking realistic grass.  So the render settings are not the problem ( I guess).  Has anybody else experienced the same issue with the presets?
Is there a workaround to improve its quality?
Cheers

Hi Lukasz,

You can rotate the RC object itself as needed - to get its "Z" axis aligned with the intended direction (if the sreen-shot is taken from the top view, setting the X rotation to -90º should do the trick).

Hope that helps.

Best regards,

I concur that fixing the licence issue has revolved our problem. I'd still like to know why this happened. Or has it been that way since the licence expired two years ago and we never noticed........ If so, then we would have paid for nearly two years of the licence and without it working.

No drama, but I would urge everyone to do through the details of their licences on the licence server and also check on the web control panel id the end dates match. Then resend the keys to those that don't match.

All good now.

Thanks for your help, good support as ever!

Andy.

Hi guys,

We have updated all our software at the office but forest pack does not seem supported by V-Ray Next for 3ds Max, update 1.1 (Release Date:   Dec 18, 2018)

Is there any hotfix which we are missing?
