Forest Pro mask texture feature
« on: August 05, 2014, 04:30:58 PM »
Hi,

Iam wondering, if there is a way to mask area with texture.

I know about Paint area and about Map in Distribution section. Paint area is sometimes bad, you know, have to paint. And Map in distribution section is good, but its not only mask, but distribution map too.

What I mean, set the distribution map as I want, set distribution map, set scale, threshold and so on. And then this settings mask with black and white texture. I think it will be great.

Hi,

This is possible by using a Composite map as described in this thread.

"In this case it would be necessary two maps: one for mask and other for distribution.
Although Forest cannot use more than one map, it can be done combining mask and distribution with a "Composite" texture, using it as Distribution->Map. In case that you need a custom map by area, just assign it to Areas->Override Dist.Map."

Hope it'll help you.

Kind regards,
