There seems to be little progress on Flamingo nXt ... or is this just my imagination?Now Octane for Rhino just appeared on the scene ... Reasonably priced ... is this perhaps a new and maybe better…Continue
I like the new plant editor and the few library trees I can access but ...I have lost access to all the plant libraries I had with Flamingo previously. Flamingo nXt reports that there are none. I can…Continue
"I did purchase nXt for Rhino 5 and I recently purchased the Octane plugin as well so probably Maxwell is not in my sights.
What I need now is the learning curves for rendering with Neon and Octane to see where I go from here.
I bought Penguin…"
"You're not alone!
I have also noticed that it has got quiet on the Flaming nXt and Brazil forum. Personally, I wish McNeel put more development resources in the standard Rhino render and combine it with neon. Take all the good bits of nXt…"
There seems to be little progress on Flamingo nXt ... or is this just my imagination?Now Octane for Rhino just appeared on the scene ... Reasonably priced ... is this perhaps a new and maybe better direction ... and Neon gets better and better.Does it make sense to invest the time getting better in one of those rather than pursuing nXt or is it going to move forward?ericSee More
This is actually a problem in our updater. We pulled an update because it did not work all the time. This causes the confusing message. By re-installing on you computer it set all the flags correctly so the message…"
Hi all ...This is not a serious problem but it has been perplexing.I recently bought a new laptop ... primarily for taking to meetings with clients and using it to display rhino/flamingo architectural models to clients.It came with Windows Home 8 ... so I updated my desktop to Windows Pro 8 (up from W7).My laptop kept telling that a critical update for 3.0 was available and each time I downloaded and apparently installed the Sept 11 version of nXt.But my desktop was running the October 18…See More
"I installed nXt a few minutes ago ... went through all the stuff, loading R4 and then inserting the Fl2 CD and seem to now have nXt running alright ... I have enough room on my HD to leave well enough alone if this will not cause a problem in the…"
"They are really doing something odd there. Looks like you need flamingo for Lands and viceversa. So, if I want to render trees from Lands with another render will be difficult, but if I want trees in flamingo I need Lands... odd."
"Hi Scott ...
Is there going to be a fix for this or do I have to also install R4 on my new laptop in order to use nXt?
Will my new R5 release take care of the problem? It should arrive in the mail any time soon. I am at somewhat of a loss about what…"
"Yes, I just experienced the same problem.
On my desktop I simply added the eval version while waiting for my order for the new one to arrive. It came in fine and left Flamingo nXt installed though I have not attempted to use it yet.
But, on my new…"
"I have used Asuni Cad's Land Design plug-in for Rhino and it does seem to have a rather large plant library though I have only tried a few trees so far. The leaves seem to be too large for the scale of the tree but I have not attempted any…"
"Good day Eric!
I have also found it a bit frustrating that the extensive plant library found in Flamingo 2 does not exist in NXT. Specially since I work for a plant nursery and I would love to be able to render plants together with the rack designs…"
