Help With Paint Effects Needed
I'm having a problem with Paint Effects. When I use the Auto Paint > Paint Grid function on my 20x20 unit nubs plane, I get a grid that stretches out 600 units! And I can't seem to make it do anything else no matter what settings I change in the options.

Has anyone seen this problem? You can have a look at the problem here. Any help would be appreciated.

I haven't used Auto-paint....did you make the Nurbs surface paintable? I'll give it a try and see what happens

Ok, mine worked fine. Create a 20x20 Nurbs plane with 10x10 patches. Went to Paint Effects/Make Paintable, then went, opened Visor, chose a grass brush, then Paint Effects/Auto Paint/Paint Grid. Painted the grass along the grid and opened the strokes in the channel box.

Thanks for your interest in helping to avoid getting a lot of advice for things I've already tried, here's a quick run-down of what the scene looks like.
  • I've tried it paintable and before it's made paintable.
  • I've tried different brushes and brush sizes, small and large.
  • I've tried painting on different NURBS primitives.
  • I've tried altering most if not all the settings in the options. None of the options seem to affect the size of the overal grid. I assumed that it would just fill the surface you have selected at the time.

I'm thinking this must be a bug someone besides me has run into, and it should have an obvious answer.

Thanks again for any help...

Yeah, that sounds like maybe a bug in the beta, I'm still running Maya 4 here, maybe someone with the final of 4.5 can give it a go and see if they run into the same trouble, sorry I couldn't help you out.
