Issue with Skatter

Post by jiminy-billy-bob » Tue Sep 27, 2016 9:38 pm

There's an issue when using Skatter's "Render Only" feature with Indigo.

It works fine if we scatter a simple component, but if there's another group/comp nested in this component, it won't be rendered.

I attached an example file. There's already a Skatter setup, you'ill find it in the Render List tab in the Skatter dialog.

This is a big issue, as the whole Skatter library is set up with nested components like that, so users are not able to render these assets.

Yes I have the same problem,

see image,

if I click "render only" the skatter group is not rendered, neither as a simple object nor with nested groups.

if I untick "render only" it will be rendered but makes Sketchup extremely slow especially with the likes of grass.

I have Indigo RT v3.8.34 and Sketchup 2016

Hey Bob! Any news from the devs?
I just downloaded v.1.2 and seems great, I wanted to use the gravel feature but I can't even think about it if proxies aren't supported... :|

thanks for the effort Ono, it seems SU2017 is having a number of problems with extensions / plugins, mainly licencing it seems, I've stalled my SU2017 uptake until it gets sorted
