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.

 

Cheers

Jamie

Hi Eduard,

 

Not sure if you noticed this bug yet but I found that you get a crash when turning on the Affects parameter [i was using [i]Affects =Lengt[/i]h] with vertex colours.

Hi Jamie,

 

Maybe this bug we've fixed, but I'll check it again. Thanks!
