  1. Hi there, My file keeps crashing when I open it...after merging everything it appears that it's the Wind modifier that is causing this crash. Only happens when I open a file. The wind is applied to certain GFX objects, which are then scattered using Itoo Forest Pack (also using Forest LODs). I'm using Vray 5 (latest update) and 3DS Max 2021 (latest update). Please help! Thanks, Terri
  2. Hi Eduard, So I'm trying out GPU rendering vs CPU...in fact I've also been playing with hybrid rendering and the time saving results are pretty awesome. Seems like this is definitely the way of the future, and for us artists any option to save time is a very welcome one! BUT...I use GrowFX with Forest pack on pretty much every project. It seems like GrowFX objects are completely disregarded by GPU rendering in Vray. Is that a Chaos thing or an Exlevel thing? Thanks, Terri
  3. I merged everything into a new file...crashes. However, when I merge without the GFX Wind object it's ok. This has only been happening since I updated GFX the other day.
  4. Hi Eduard, Max is crashing since I updated to the latest GFX version, but it seems to be a problem with multimap, as when I uninstall multimap it stops crashing. I am working on 3ds max 2014, Windows 7, Vray Next. Please advise. Thanks, Terri
  5. yes, turns out it was an IG mesh used for the flowers - I just deleted and added again and it fixed the problem. thanks!
  6. Hi, I recently updated to max 2021 and have opened an old file (about a year old), and I am getting the attached error message for some star jasmine I created. I'm not using the beta version to create this one, but I have downloaded the latest version of growFX. Please advise. Thanks
  7. Hi Eduard, Out of interest do you have a projection date for the final release of GFX 2...that is, no more beta? Thanks a mil
  8. Hi there, Before installing anything and potentially causing computer confusion, I just wanted to check if it's possible to have more than one version of GrowFX installed on the same machine. The reason being this: I use 3DS Max 2014, but I want to test 2020, so I downloaded the trial. Can I install both growFX for 2014 and 2020 on the same machine? Thanks
  9. Hi Eduard...and all you out there, I'm not sure what settings to use for the leaves in this ticky creeper? In fact, I don't really understand a lot of the distributor settings and end up just playing around until it looks right. I usually use circular leaf distributor, but in this case should it be angular? I have switched off all my Direction modifiers until it looks right and then I will add variation with them. Please help! Unless you think I am on the right path... Thanks a mil, Terri
  10. Hi Nik, This thread may help you: https://exlevel.com/forum/index.php?/topic/603-preparing-a-tree-with-wind-for-forest-pack/
  11. Hi Eduard, I have that issue on occasion. Please can you send me the update (if it's different from SP7). Thanks
  12. maxtree has a very good selection that you can adjust to fit your needs. not sure of lumion interoperability...
  13. Hi, I want to create some GFX plants to use with Forest Pack on vertical green walls. According to the tutorial below, I need to align the plants z-axis perpendicular to the wall. Please can someone advise the best way to create a plant like those attached with the pivot point of the GFX object correctly set up? Every time I try and rotate the GFX pivot it messes up my Vector Direction modifiers. Thansk, appreciate it!!! https://www.itoosoft.com/tutorials/scattering-on-vertical-surfaces
