    Default Selecting assets under a ForestPack

    Hello guys, we recently moved from multiscatter to forestpack in our studio. As our scenes are quite big in scale, we usually have a lot of different types of scatter in one scene.

    With multiscatter there used to be an option which would let you select all the root distributed objects under one scatter to save as a library. We cant seem to find any such asset collection option under forestpack.

    Can someone throw some light on this?
    Would be highly helpfull! Thanks!!

    I don't think it's possible in ForestPro. The only thing I know of is to use the list in the Geometry tab to see which objects are being used, then manually find them.

    Why not request this on the Itoo forums? They're really good at putting ideas in place.

    Found a quick and easy work around.

    Open a blank max file. Go Import > Merge. Select the Forest you'd like to re-use. The assets that forest needs are in a blue font, so select them too, and import.

    If you then save this max file, you can just merge in everything.

    Thanks Dean,
    I have already written the guys at itoo an email. Lets see if they plan to include this in the next update
    I will put the question on the forums as well.

    Cheers

    It seems like the Forest Lister is what you want: https://docs.itoosoft.com/forestpack/forest-lister

    Not exactly,
    I want some function to select all the distributed objects within the forest object. Multiscatter gave this option as 'select all dependencies'.
    Something on those lines
