GrowFX beta version 1.7.0 is now available


Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

 

We have prepared a new beta version, it's available to customers only.

 

What's New in GrowFX 1.7.0

+ New direction modifier "Wind animation", and "Wind" helper object. For easy and quick settings of the wind animation.

+ New direction modifier "Hard bend". This allows to create a hard bend directions, mainly for the leaves of palm trees.

+ Support of the Nitrous viewport graphics mode in 3ds Max 2012.

+ Some minor bugs are fixed.

 

A detailed description and user manual will be available later.

 

Here you can see a video tutorial to configure a wind animation of the tree:

 

Download this scene (3ds Max 2009 + GrowFX 1.7.0)

Unfortunately it fails here in Max 2012.

 

This is the message I get when trying to create a new tree or to open an old GrowFX scene:

 

GrowFX170Error.jpg

 

I'm on Vista 64 bits. It works fine in 2010 and 2011. Any idea?

Strangely, we have all Ok, but I have a Windows 7 x64 and also 3dsMax 2012, and I don't think that there is a difference.

Maybe there was a failure during download or installation?

 

Who has 3ds Max 2012 x64? Please check this...

We updated EL_Helpers.dlo, please download EL_Helpers_3dsMax2012x64.zip, unzip and replace this file in the installation folder (it should be in C:\Program Files\Exlevel\GrowFX_3dsMax_2012\ ).

 

It is likely that the problem in this file. Try it and let me know the results, please.

Nice Job mentor, i have a few of your libraries, really like your trees :)...

 

so i guess youre not having the same error as some us :), lucky you

 

you know...now that we have the wind feature, you should make one library with animated trees, but for billboards!! would be even better if the animations were loopable, like 150 to 250 frms (6 to 10 seconds) on each tree.

Hi Eduard...

 

I got the files u sent thx...but no luck, still erroring..

 

I notice that when i re-install (i had uninstalled 1.7)and open max... it works, you can play with growfx...if u save the file and then re open...it also works, but IF you close max and re open and then reload file, error show up.

 

This behaviour is always the same, i tried to re install and folow this pattern i explain, and everytime error shows up.
