  1. Hi Eduard,

    I ran into the same issue again with another tree, now GrowFX crashes on start. I tried importing it in a new scene, which didn't work. I can disable calculations to make it not crash, however I cannot make copies or do variations in this case. I appreciate any help to solve this issue. I have already sent the file to support email.

    Thank you in advance,


  2. Hi Eduard,

    Thank you for your reply. I have disabled Autobackup, so there's no back up file. I got the file working for now. Imported it into a new scene and it's working fine for now. If I ran into another crash, I'll send the file. I'm not completely sure that it was GrowFX related.

    Thank you again,


  3. Hi Eduard,

    While I was working on a tree, Max crashed. Unfortunately, it could not save the file, what's even worse is that my previously saved file also crashes on start. I was adding an affect graph for a path position distributor's length, when this happened. Is there any way that I can recover my file somehow, even if it's just a portion of the file?

    I truly appreciate any help, as I'm under a deadline.



  4. Hi,

    Yeah, I kinda knew that, but thanks for the reminder. It's actually more like 3 parameters; the "angel axis" should also be inverted.

    I just thought it'll save some time, since now the mesh and distributor parameters are not shared, and also may cause some cluttering if we have lots of those nodes, each with a left and right; hard to track the nodes. In any event, it's OK for now, but I guess if it'll all become node based, it will help a lot if we can have an invert node that takes values(numbers), just like Maya, so they can be plugged in, somewhere in the middle of the graph to other nodes. It's all suggestions, nothing really serious.

    Thanks again,



  5. Hi Eduard,

    Thank you for such a great release. Could you please upload an example file for "Scale Proportionally". I can't get it to work (don't know how it works!).

    Also I realized that, in the "instanced geometry mesh" , "count rate" does not work as expected. The first item in the list, gets picked far less than the others. In other words, it does not work the same for all the items in the list, even if the same value is assigned to count rate for each item.

    (Here is an example : http://we.tl/wWyyc7tJ8Y).

    Thank you,


  6. Thank you, I got the file.

    I just had a question : 


    "Now you can control the stitching "by Radius" only"

    Does that mean I should use "Stop Stitching" > "By radius" ? Because I can see that It also works as expected even when using "After Pos. % " I can't see any problem there.

    I should also mention that "Stop stitching for children" is absolutely amazing and a huge time saver.

  7. Hi Eduard,

    If it's one of those time consuming bugs, I guess it's O.K. if it's left there. Because it happens very rarely and in fact it's the very first time that happened to me and apparently no one else has reported it yet. It shouldn't be of any concern unless it happens again.

    It's nice if I could just get my preset back regardless of the bug, since I have a feeling that I can prevent it from happening again.

    Just in case you needed some information; I'm assuming it's related to the displacement section of the meta mesh specially the scale graph.

    Thank you so much for your support,


  8. Hi,

    I was working on a project and made some trees with meta mesh as their "mesh builder" and they all work O.K. and I saved them both in Max and Gfx files. Now that I open one of them it crashes on building meta mesh phase. It does not matter if I open the Max file or load the preset file, it'll eventually crash. I should also mention that they all had displacement applied to them. Is there a way to get my preset back as I put lots of time in creating it or is there a way to disable meta mesh on load so I can avoid the crash and then I'll try to figure what went wrong and hopefully fix it. Btw, I've also sent the files to support via e-mail.

    I'd appreciate any help.
