General - Off Topic / Rendering question
« Last post by IT1371 on October 14, 2018, 02:07:40 PM »
So I'm in the field for a few years by now. My works are okay and i'm semi-happy about them and clients are satisfied.
But when I see stuff like this:
http://www.polymachine.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/ESK_project2_camera11_.jpg
I get very confused. How do they make this look so good?

I have the same whatever models and we probably even use the same set of plugins and HDRIs.
How do they get such results? I read tons of literature, try new stuff but yet I feel like i'm missing on something.
Is there some magic button I ignore all this time?

Hi

Yes- There is guide for ForestPack Too.

Regarding distribution maps it is not that interesting. They are installed with every ForestPack install at default location:
C:\Program Files\Itoo Software\Forest Pack Pro\distmaps\images

Which should be the same in all render nodes, right ?

Hi Rokas,
thanks for your help.
I followed the guide and updated the registry keys on one of our machines. It worked. The RC library is now on our network drive.
Is there a similar solution for forest pack? So I could do this for all users on a machine (and on all our machines) without logging in into every user's account?
This is specifically interesting for the path of forest's distance maps.

Thanks again and best regards
Wojtek

Do you have any script to convert such maps quickly. is there any workaround?
Funny thing is they are providing ready forest library.

You should be assigning material per each object in material slot in ForestPack settings:

Forest Pro (*) / Forest Colour

Hi all.

We use Forest Color a LOT.

However, we often load a scene and the grass has reverted back to its original material.

Please see the following video:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6e_FOjVgIm4&feature=youtu.be



When Forest Color is working, the Grass is white (when in proxy mode)

When it isn't working it's a dull green colour.

We apply the Forest Color by loading in an object with a Forest Color material assigned to it.  We then select the grass and apply the material in the Slate Editor.  This switches the Grass from dull green to white.

Can you tell me if this is the correct process?

Or is there a more stable way.

We have just sent an animation shot to Vray Cloud and the Forest Color hasn't worked. 

I've made a post on the Vray Cloud forum but I'm not sure if it's the cloud that hasn't rendered the Forest Color correctly or if it's the way we're applying the Forest Color.

The scene may have loaded their end with the grass dull green.

Any help with this would be great.

Thanks,

Sean

Hi

I see MaxTree uses "VrayMultiSubTex" which is not supported in ForestPack. For this purpose we have developed Forest Color which has more capabilities in rendering trees.

Hi,
Few tree from Maxtree vol12 is changing material when put in forest.
As a mesh and vray proxy it renders fine. The material uses multiple leaf and id based material.
Both the proxy and mesh are used as custom object and both shown error.
i am using 5.4.0. and vray 3.60.03 .
Was there any update in recent releases?
