    Floating Plants

    Thanks everyone for your suggestions. I changed the setting on my site model to 'All layers'. That has helped heaps. Thank you Tamsin! With the site model, I was able to find the source data, I think it was invisable due to me turning off the class 'Survey-Levels'. The few plants that float still do so, but I have individually selected them and entered a z value manually. Looks heaps better & would have re-created the site model if I had time, but I have already spent way too much time on this project!!!! With the plants being invisable when rendered in final quality renderworks - I think this is a issue with the 3D plant image props I used. I tried to render these plants in a blank file and they would only show up in openGL, but not if rendered in Final Quality Renderworks. The plant image props come from the library file 'Aus Plant Image Props 2012'. I'd be interesed to know if anyone thinks these image props are faulty or if it's me & my computer???

    Thanks for all the help. It's very much appreciated! Will give Benson's idea a go and will send the file via dropbox to Tamsin. My computer has 8GB of RAM.

    Thanks Tamsin, but it didn't work. I will try to email you the file but it is 300MB - hope that's not too large to make it through! The other thing that happens with this file is that when I create a view port and render it in final quality renderworks, some plants disappear completely, but if I render it in opengl, then they are all there. Any ideas as to why this is???? Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated!

    My graphics card is a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 550Ti. Is that powerful enough for what I am attempting to do???

    Tried that. All 3D plants are at z0. The same plant can appear on different parts of the plan & sometimes sit on the model & other times float.

    Hi Tamsin Thank you for answering. The plants all have a z value of 0. In one particular group of the same plant, some are sitting on the surface of the model while others float! Very weird!

    I am using Landmark 2012 & have a complex site model with textures & texture beds, etc and when rendering in a 3D view some of the 3D plants disappear completely and other groups float above the site model. Strange thing is that in some groups of the same plant, some of the plants will sit on the site model while others float. Some groups of plants do however sit on the site model. I have tried selecting the plants and sending them to the surface, but this hasn't worked either. I am wondering if maybe its a problem with my graphics card as I am also getting 'performance alerts' saying that 100% of CPU is used??????
