Hi!

Thanks for the question. Please take a look at the attached in which I have modifier the Forest Effect slightly. The issue appeared to be related to the fact that the V-Ray Distance Texture does not use UVW coordinates but the effect was using the surface's UVW's to read the texture information. I have updated it so that it now uses the position of the item instead. Please note that in order for this to work, the Forest Object's location should be set to the world origin.



I hope that helps, please let me know if you have any further questions.

All the best,

Paul

Thanks! I think that UVW is the problem, but Im not sure. Is there any chance to put this in Efects Lib.?
Thx again

Glad that helped out. Sure, I think we can add it to the library.

All the best,
