XFROG Library: BIG Error in geometry variations
« on: December 23, 2013, 02:20:55 PM »
Hi,

I've recently installed the Xfrog library. I've moved the textures in 1 folder. So far so good. No problem. I can create a Forest and use the Library. But....

When selecting 2 of the same types hedges in the library but in different variance (example: Hornbeam variation 1 and 2) they both get the same identical mesh! Both custom objects refer to the same mesh.
When choosing a boxwood and a hornbeam hedge, it works correct.

I think this is because in the Xfrog library, the models have the same name (but refer to a different model). Something gets messed up in the forest object.

I hope you understand my problem. Might the problem be due to my installation (Xfrog models are on a network path)?
I'm using Xfrog Pro with VRay on 3DS max.

Please help! I have a project deadline on 1st of January  :).

Again, thanks for your help.
Best regards,
Teun

Yes, the problem is the models have the same name. Forest uses the library path and the model name to get an unique identifier, and check if the model was already loaded.
We have not noticed of this problem until now. We'll fix it for the next XFrogCatalog update.

Meanwhile, remember that you can load any model manually: just merge the mesh in the scene and assign it to Geometry->Custom Object.

Thanks for the quick reply! I Love the Itoo software by the way.
The library makes my workflow a lot quicker than merging manually.
Anyhow. Looking forward to the fix.

Kind regards,
Teun

This problem is fixed in XFrogCatalog 1.2.0.
