    GrowFX Student version?

    Hi Jacob Spagnuolo, Yes of course, I've sent you our offer for an educational license... Thanks!

    GrowFX Student version?

    Hey Eduard I'm a student at Ferris State University, studying computer animation. I've found your software recently and really want to learn the software, can I also please have a educational license? Thank You!

    Fruit Stems Alignment....

    I have a tree with fruit. Issue 1: The stems of the fruit sometimes look into the trunk or into the branch they come out of instead of pointing away from their source. Is there a way to make the stems look away from the trunk, so they all point outward away from branch/truck they are attached to? Issue 2: It seems like this may be because they are unaware of the thickness of their parent. Since the stems are short, if the branch is thick, the stem may never emerge... is there a way to compensate this? Thanks in Advance, Joel E.
  7. Hi there, I'm looking for Growfx artists who could possibly model: - 5 trees - 5 bushes Something similar to the quality here: https://evermotion.org/shop/cat/385/trees https://evermotion.org/shop/cat/386/small_plants Let me know by emailing examples of your work and what it will cost me. info(at)jireh3d.com Thank you Choppir
  8. Solved!! Thanks a lot mate! Grow Fx is great piece of digital art!! Cheers!!

    Object slice not working

    Ok. Later we'll add the ability to use the back side of faces. Thanks!
  10. No problem, I just deactivated your very old activation on the server side, and now you can activate again... Thanks!

    Object slice not working

    Flip normals did it! Thanks. Not sure why though, as they are now inverted on the object cutter shape but it looks to have worked so I'll go with that. Thanks again.
  13. I am already Exlevel customer, i have grow fx installed on my workstation, but when i try to activate it on my laptop i receive this message. I installed new SSD and system and somehow i am not able to activate it again.

    Object slice not working

    Hi bobski, Maybe you need to invert the normals in your slice object? Please try to do this, I see no other reason. Thanks!
  15. Hello Pezzoni, The Individual license will allow you to activate on 2 PCs, so you can use it on your laptop without any activation/deactivation. Of course, you can also deactivate your license at any time and activate it on another machine. You'll need this if you want to change your PC or reinstall Windows. We'll be glad to see you among our customers! Thanks!
  16. Hi Im trying to shape my tree using the object slicer but i cant get it to influence the branch1 shape at all using custom geometry. I have tried the exlevel helper primitives and they work so I think I have everything in the right place. I have tried using a max sphere and ffd to create the custom shape and also a standard box. Also tried collapsing the slicing object to a mesh but nothing has an effect on the tree unless I use the exlevel primitive but I want an more complex shape than that. Is there an obvious mistake I'm making? Unfortunately I cant share my file as its a bought one. Many thanks for any help on this.
  17. Hello again, grow fx on both machines...most of the time i am working on my workstation, but when i travel (train, airplane) i would like to be able to use it on my laptop as well. Is this activating/deactivating process? Or is there some workflow as with Vray, automatic online server activation? Regards, Pezzoni

    deform instance geometry along path

    Hello guys, Sorry for my late reaction. The cropping tool is working fine and is a decent way to achieve my target, thanks for that! Still i am curious if it's possible to do it with a instanced geometry. I saw they doing it in a tutorial of itoo software, where they had cut out the leaves of a quixel atlas. i've attached the max file. kind regards, Martijn Brands fern_cropping images.max

    Seed Offset for Instanced Geometry

    Awesome, thanks for the heads up, Eduard!

    It works like charm now! Thank you for your detailed guide!

    Seed Offset for Instanced Geometry

    Hi Flakked, This will be in version 2.0. There, each component (each node) has common parameters such as Count Rate% and Seed Offset, and you can change the Seed Offset for your Instanced Geometry. Thanks!

    It looks cool! You can also add this plant to our plants library, of course if you want. Thanks a lot!

    deform instance geometry along path

    Instead of cutting could you use the cropping tool in the "bitmap parameters" tab of your map in the material editor ? Then you could just apply the atlas like a regular bitmap onto the native GrowFX leaf mesh. I am not sure if this is exactly what you need, but it would allow you avoid using instances. I am not really sure if my method is the correct way, but it works for me. UPDATE: Try rotating the pivot of your instance object. It looks like GrowFX deforms instances along the z axis. On a flat object there is no z info. You have to align the z to the long axis (the one you want to bend). In the image on the original post it looks like the z is aligned to the long axis, unless the leaves were created flat and then rotated into position. This wouldn't change the pivot and would give the above result of a flat non conforming leaf. also, make sure that you cut some segments in your geometry to allow for the bend. Hope it helps !

    deform instance geometry along path

    Hi,any update on this problem? I have the exact same question:is there any way to deform an instanced object along the curve? I import atlas from megascan bridge and use cut tool to get individual object,I expect growfx to deform the instanced object along curve but its not.
  26. Hi Danilo Its hard to say without looking at the file. You could try checking the "turn off central edges" in the mesh builder panel for your leaves, and making the segment distance (modifier panel), and the minimum face size (modelling panel) .This will bring your poly count down, which might help. In the main menu under preferences you could try turning off "meta mesh" universally. If you model works properly with with this option checked then the problem is occuring when your meta mesh is being built. It's hard to say without more information, could you do a screen capture with all three tabs expanded? That would allow me to see what your settings are and hopefully give you a better answer.
  27. Hello! We've been using this awesome plugin at our studio for a few months now, and one suggestion I've had is adding in a Seed Offset value for an Instanced Geometry mesh builder comprised of multiple objects. I was reading a previous suggestion post that sounds related, but my issue is a little different I believe: ( https://exlevel.com/forum/index.php?/topic/192-random-choice-of-objects-in-list-in-the-instanced-geometry-mesh-builder/ ) Here's an example of the issue I'm running into: I'll notice that I have two of the same frond cards that are next to each other. If there was a Seed Offset, I could roll the dice (so to speak) and get a new variation on the objects. As a workaround, I've been adjusting the "Count Rate %" of a specific Instanced Geometry object to get rid of duplicates. The downside with this is sometimes you have to reduce it quite a bit, which in turn means that object won't show up as much, and therefore less variation globally. Thanks again!
