  1. I've been looking and can't find "MyGrowFX".. Where is that?
  2. Yep. That's what I wanted. I am unable to select branches to add to that trim modifier. (Or erase modifier) Also, I am unable to load the file you posted above. It says that it was created with a newer version of GrowFX. I am running 1.9.8 SP3
  3. Well, I'm stumped. Did you apply the modifier to Branches1 or Branches2+?
  4. MAX 2014x64. It's entirely possible I've done something wrong. I'm very new to GrowFX and it has been a very slow start trying to find my way around. Client wants me to remove lower limbs for view and access. This is the first tree I've made, so it might be a disaster. Any suggestions are welcome. File is here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/mguycj8f85kben1/Ironwood.max?dl=0
  5. I'm trying to prune branches of a growfx object, but I'm stumped. I selected the branches path, then under Direction Modifiers added a Trim modifier. I then ticked the "Trim Lines" button, but I'm unable to select any branches. Any idea what I'm doing wrong?
  6. I need to hire a tree or plant from time to time. I may actually need a few right now. If you're interested, PM me and I'll send you some photos so you can give me an idea of cost. Thanks!
  7. I spent some more time with it tonight. What do you think? Getting any better? Any suggestions?
  8. Thanks Ben. That's a great improvement. All your advice is good and welcome. I know I can't match a photo, and I do have reference photos. I was trying to do the step by step thing that you mentioned, but I'm not sure where I'm going wrong. Something is slightly odd about the trunk, but not a big deal. I'd like to get the branches to twist more like the photo. And I'm not sure if the number of sub-branches and twigs I used is correct. What do you think? Thanks again!
  9. Hello! I've just begun using GrowFX. I can see I have my work cut out for me, but it looks to be a very powerful tool. I hoped that I could get some feedback from those of you more seasoned than I to get me pointed in the right direction. I've gone through several tutorials, then dug in to try it out. Below is my first attempt, an ironwood tree. You'll see the photo my client sent me for reference, a render of my latest GrowFX attempt, and the gfx file. Any pointers you could give me would be most appreciated. Thanks! ironwood-test3.gfx
