XFrog Libraries not working with XRefs
« on: October 09, 2014, 12:26:17 AM »
Hi,

I am having trouble getting the XFrog plants library to correctly XRef instead of merging into the scene.  Is this a known problem?  Every time I import an XFrog object via the Library Browser with "XRef to library", it just merges the object into the scene.  Is there a workaround for this?

BTW, The HQ plants work fine, so I suspect an XFrog-specific problem.

Thanks,

David

Hi,
Unfortunately it's not possible to use XRef with XFrog because each plant is stored as separated objects in the Max file (branch, leaves, etc.). 
So, Forest must merge and attachs these objects in the scene in order to use them.

Thanks, Carlos.  Hopefully XFrog addresses this in future.  It's great for one or two plants, but at 50+MB per tree, the file size can blow out pretty quickly!
