I intend to invest into an vegetation plug-in, as I have to do some exterior work. I am currently looking at three competeing products: Onyx, GrowFX and AutoGrass.
I would be thankful if someone in the know would be kind enough to comment on following issues:
1. if I get Onyx or GrowFX is it sensible to get AutoGrass as well, or will this be doing a redundant job?
2. how does GrowFX currently compare to the Onyx Super Bundle?
As I understand GrowFX is cheaper, appears to have a better support and allows to animate growth, while the Onyx package produces slightly better models. Is there any more to it?
3. how stable are both packages with the aforementioned versions of MAX?
4 (Bonus question) I am also thinking about getting a scatter solution (mainly for use with vray proxies).
Which scatter would you recommend? Where do you see the main limitations of the scripts/plugins and which scatterer would you recommend (if I go for a commercial solution, I would be leaning towards Forest Pack as Vray and Multi Scatter seem to get more stick on the forums).
Thank you for your input.
