Objects Interact with Forester

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone, i've been trying to figure out of there's a tag or something to make objects interact with the Forester plugin in Octane/c4d? already searched youtube but cant really find anything about it.

 

i have scene with octane scattered multiflora grass and want my snake to be rigged through with the grass reacting to it.

unfortunately not - forester is procedural and so cannot interact dynamically with other geometry assets. If you were working the other way around you may be able to get this to work by exporting the tree/flora as alembic and then potentially c4d objects could interact with it. But in this case the tree would drive any simulations. And the alembics that forester produces are so heavy that it would take a very powerful CPU to make it work.
