How to improve the transparency of my trees ?
« on: June 29, 2012, 10:15:38 AM »
Hello,
Do you know how I can improve the transparency of my hedge?


I use 3ds Max 2012 and MR.

Regards

Are you using an HDRI map as background ? In that case, please try turning off Material->Forest Shader->Fast opacity in Forest.

I'm using only the mr Physical Sky. I'm doing the merge in Photoshop.
I've the same problem with or without the option of "Fast opacity in Forest.
For your information, I'm using the mr Photographic Exposure Control.

The problem would be in the texture itself. Did you get it from the Forest library or is a custom texture ?

If that helps, here you can some tricks to remove the white halos using Photoshop:

If it is one or our textures, please tell me the exact model. We will check it and fix the map if necessary.

I use Bush 5 and 8.
But, I've tried the tip of your link (contract selection) and it's correct.
If I'm alone with this problem, it' s not dramatic.

In any case, i just added to the to-do list a full revision of our textures. Some of them are from the earlier Forest versions, and need some revamp.

Don't worry by your english... it is not my native lenguage either. ;)
