Cool. I've been playing

Cool.
I've been playing around with Unreal Ed. recently and think it would be neat to be able to paint mesh onto the surface of another object - trees onto ground for example. Having it driven by a grey scale/alpha map as they do there....

So i might look into trying to make something for max like this over the winter evenings.

Glad you like the tool and enjoy using it.

Looks like 1acc might have beaten me to it though.

His SuperPainter listed here sounds like it does something very similar. Have to check it out.
