Export rule packages, result in ArcScene

Hello everybody,

In City Engine 2013 I have created a rulefile that creates a forest from polygon shapes. I'm using the "scatter" and "FileRandom" functions. With the FileRandom function is used to  insert random  *.obj files from a folder. The rule file works well in CityEngine

Now I want to export the rulefile as rule package so I can open recreate the forest in ArcScene. The display of the locations of the trees is good,only the trees have no texture in ArcScene. See the difference in screenshot.


Anyone have an idea how I can fix it?

Hi !

I got some answers on this.

It could be that you hit an internal memory limit in ArcScene.

Can you check only very few ( e.g. 5 ) trees and check if ArcScene displays them validly ? If they're not displayed nicely, can you open them in ArcGlobe ?

If also ArcGlobe does not show the trees nicely, it may be an exporter bug.

Either way, let me know.
