hi, i just found out about the Forestpack and was eager to try it out.. the first half of the tutorial worked like a charm. Now i would like to adapt my forest to the slope of the "hills"
Now we have our house surrounded by trees, we would also like to fill the far hills with vegetation.
We switch to the top viewport to work more easily and unhide the 'trees 2 spline' object. This is a spline which surrounds the hills. We make a new Forest object using these values:
Size of trees: 3m for width and 6m height. One Plane for geometry
Distribution map: 'Dense', with a size of 190m x 190m. Offeset to 0,0 and the other values by default.
We use the 'trees 2 spline' as the inclusion spline area
Set the 'cam1' camera in camera rollout with 'Trees facing camera' and 'Limit to visibility' enabled
Scale transformation: 80% to 150%. Enable 'lock aspect ratio' checkbox
Finally, we assign the material 'trees' to the object and set the 'cam1' view as main window.
We are going to tell the plugin to adapt the trees to the elevation of the hills. Open the Surface rollout:
when i open the Surface rollout the "pick" Button is greyed out. However, i don´t understand what is meant by "and set the 'cam1' view as main window", maybe thats the reason why its not working.
Plz help fast
Thx in advance, Jens
