  • Added Areas-]Edge mode for Mental Ray and Corona renderer.
    • These renderers require to use "Forest Edge" (a new procedural texture map) in the opacity slot of ALL materials used by the Forest Object.
    • Forest Edge has no effect when used with other render engines.
    • Added support for "Forest Edge" in the Material Optimizer, so it can be applied with a single click in your scene or material library
  • Distribution-]Diversity Map and Clusters now recognize multiple models with the same color ID, handling them as a group with their own Probability values.
    • To keep compatibility with existing scenes, this feature is applied only on new FP objects.
    • This feature is not compatible with Areas-]Select models. In this case, the previous behaviour is applied (using only the first color ID match).

Fixes
