Collapse a Grow FX tree with animation

Recommended Posts

Hey there.

 

I have just started using Grow FX and have applied some wind-animation to a tree.

Now I want to make a mesh of this tree.

 

Is it possible to collapse the grow fx object to a mesh with animation?

Or is the any other workarounds for this?

 

I cant find any info on this on the forum or in the user manual.

 

I am using latest version of Grow FX and 3ds max 2014.

 

In advance, thanks for the help.

Hi Andres,

 

You can use the PointCache (3ds Max) modifier to record your wind animation to the file, and then applying it to your converted model.
Also you can convert your GrowFX model into Vray or MentalRay animated proxies.
 
Cheers

PointCache works just perfectly.

Hey

I am using growFX with the wind animation.

I want to use animated tree in UE4.

so how can i use that animated tree in UE4..

I have tried point cache but it works in Max. but when i export as a FBX animated object and import in UE4, there is no animation import, i can see just static mesh.

So if any one have sollution for the same please let me know..

Thank You very much...

To export Point Cache to FBX, you have to create Selection Set of the object. It'll enable you to export Point Cache animation to fbx. You'll have to select 'selection set' in FBX export settings.
