Hi Eduard,


Finally got time to play around with the vertex colours a bit this week & I must say it's AWESOME! You even got it to work on Custom meshes...WOW.. now that was an unexpected Bonus!

Tree/plants are looking much more realistic now & I think GrowFX has just gone leaps & bounds ahead of the competition with this update as Vertex colours was the only big thing GrowFX was missing.

I had a couple of minor crashes as I was testing but I was probably doing something I shouldn't such as Using Colours along path of standard leaf mesh I think?] Anyway I will let you know once I can isolate it with more testing.

Thanks again & I will post some renders when I get time


Thanks also for updating the meta-mesh builder.....I can now tweak my leaves without the meta-mesh rebuilding the tree everytime......Great time saver again.
