QUESTION

How do I show the growth of plants in my Home Designer plan?


ANSWER

 

To show the growth of your plants

  1. First, launch Home Designer and choose to Open  the plan in which you want to grow your plants.


  2. Take a Perspective Full Camera  view of your plan.


  3. Select Terrain> Plant> Grow All Plants  to open the Grow Plants dialog.


  4. Click and drag the slider bar and select a growth period from 0 to 20 years.

     


    This only applies to plants that have a mature height and mature age set in their Plant Image Specification dialog.



    Once a plant has been "grown" in a 3D camera view, moving the slider back to the left will not shrink the plant image back down in size.



  5. Click OK to apply the changes and see your 3D camera view update.
