GrowFX 1.9.8 Released


Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

GrowFX 1.9.8 has been released.

What's new:

+ Added a new Trim modifier that allows the user to trim lines (stems, branches, leaves etc.) directly in the viewport;
+ Added the Revert erased lines button in the Eraser modifier;
+ Copy/Paste now works between all the Graph Controllers;
+ Added the visibility toggle for the paths list;
+ Added some new MaxScript functions;
+ Removed parameter SubDivs from the Preference parameters, accordingly improved algorithm for the Path distributor;
+ Improved algorithm for the Zigzag direction modifier;
+ Some minor bugs are fixed.




How to use the Trim modifier:




Copying and pasting between all the Graph Controllers. When you right-click a graph button of any parameters, this menu appears:

Where you can copy and then paste the graph to another parameter.



Added the "Revert erased lines" button in the Eraser modifier:

Thanks again for another Great Update Eduard!!!

 

The new Trim tool is absolutely awesome...well done.

 

Also Copy & Paste of graphs saves a huge amount of time & helps get things perfect such as offsets.

 

As usual.....the best software with the best support....keep up the great work

Cheers

Jamie

Nice to see the new pine in the library, as well - hopefully we'll going to see more in the future. Just a while ago I was thinking that having a slight more extensive library of quality plants would most likely help increase the popularity of GrowFX among the arch-viz users.
