    Добрый вечер, к сожалению, столкнулся с той же проблемой, не могу деактивировать лицензии, выдает ошибку. 



    Я деактивировал Ваши активации на стороне сервера, можете активировать снова. 



  2. Hello Sean,


    Apologize for the delay in replying!

    After importing to the new scene, the tree appears okay, but is much too large (due to not rescaling)

    I can change the scale to 39.37 but not collapse the transform, is that what you mean? will this cause any issues with animation?


    Yes, most likely I didn't compare the actual size of the tree.

    You can try to rescale it using the built-in Rescale GrowFX object algorithm in the Preference parameters rollout.

    Thanks for looking into this! I just tried the quick fix but it didn't seem to work for me. The Trunk still gets very skinny after merging even though it looks right beforehand. Did this work when you tried it?


    Hello Sean,


    Of course, I was able to properly scale the trees (that you sent me).

    Maybe you didn't completely change the units?
    There you need to change the display and system units, and set them up so that they are exactly the same as in the final scene where you'll import the tree.



  4. Hello Sean,


    Yes, we're still investigating this issue. It's strange, but it seems that earlier we already solved it, but now I see that it has reappeared.


    As a quick fix, you can open these trees and change the units in this scene as you wish. This will rescale the tree correctly.
    Then you can merge it into another scene without any problems.



  5. Hello Usman,


    You can use the DisableCalc.exe utility, you will find it in the installation folder, or in the menu Start > Exlevel > Disable calculation.



    Click Yes, and then restart 3dsMax. After starting 3dsMax, it will ask you that calculations are off, and if you want to turn it on, click No.

    To enable calculations, you need to restart 3dsMax again, and answer Yes to the same question.


    Yes, GrowFX can calculate even if Manual update is enabled, for example when rendering. Apparently forestpack uses the render function to get the resulting mesh.


  6. Somehow I missed this post, sorry.


    But this option has already been added a long time ago, most likely in the release of GrowFX 2.0.0 (non-beta version). We just forgot to describe it in the help :)




    To add a new Reroute knot, you need to hold Shift and click on the connection line.

    To rotate the direction clockwise, you just need to double-click on this knot.
    To rotate the direction counterclockwise, you need to hold Alt and double-click on this knot.

    Hi @Eduard


    just to clarify: how would one be able to align the leaves without wind?




    Hi Timursq,


    I think Vector direction can do this easily.
    Since your leaves are objects of instanced geometry, you can direct the path lines straight up using Vector direction, and place leaves on them.

    Just turn the pivot of the leaves so they are oriented correctly.


    BTW, we found a bug with Vector direction, but we've already fixed it, and will soon update all the files on the server.
    The problem was that with a large Strength value, the path lines was greatly distorted.

    Today, I found out that I have such a small problem all the time. I use the Chinese version of 3d max, and the English UI is also not displayed


    Hello 小饰X,


    I tried running the Chinese version of 3dsMax and no problem, everything is displayed fine, see my screenshot below.
    Maybe you have some display settings or fonts? Although GrowFX evaluates both font sizes and screen settings, and adjusts the UI according to these parameters.





  9. Hi cb2000,


    Of course, you can set up the tree to only animate one parameter.
    If you are using GrowFX 1.x, you can read this section:


    You'll also find example files there.


    If you are using GrowFX 2.0 then see this sections:






    Please let me know if you have any questions.


  10. Hello Timursq,


    I looked at your plant, and I think it's possible to align the leaves, but avoiding collisions is more difficult. There need to reduce the number of leaves, or make the whole plant wider.
    I can try to recreate your plant, but I wanted to ask, do you want to get this lily with wind animation?
    It's just more difficult to do with the wind without leaf collisions.
