If you have been using Infraworks 2014, you might have noticed that there is an issue with some of the trees. Notably, the road style Boulevard with Trees and another particular tree. The result shows the trunk of the trees as transparent. See image below…
You can read about my post in the Infraworks Discussion Group.
Thanks to the user Henrik-B, there is a solution!!
Henrik-B states that the workaround is as follows:
1. In Windows explorer, find your Infraworks resource folder. The path is usually something like this:
Note that ProgramData is a system folder that is often hidden by default, so that you might not see ProgramData in c:.
2. Inside the resource folder, the texture file that causes the problem in your case is in this subfolder:
Here, there should be a file called PalmBark001_Diffuse.jpg
Henrik-B also states the problem is that the models contain some monochrome .jpg textures that are not handled correctly by Infraworks 2014.

Autodesk has released two important installs.
Civil 3D 2013 Hotfix 3 has fixed a lot of issues including stability improvements under Windows 8 and updates to how Vault manages circular references.
A good friend of mine and fellow peer, Shawn Herring has created a great expression I wanted to share with all of you.
You can go directly to the link here.
While you are there, join the group and start some great discussions. See you there!!
The new release has a lot of improvements. Having said that, you better check out the new system requirements for it. It is eating my laptop alive!! There are many settings to improve the performance, but doing so degrades the look of your model.
In the Ultimate suite you will get a new module called Roads & Highways. This module will allow you to create about 40% of your design in Infraworks, including alignments and profiles, before you even open Civil 3D.
I hope to see some new videos out there from my subscribers.
