Miscanthus
« on: April 06, 2013, 09:41:52 PM »
Hello,
I'm looking for a way to create this kind of grass. I model 5 blades and i want to scatter them in a circle. The rotation is the difficulty. How can i rotate the blade around the center of the circle and not around their own pivot ?
But Maybe it's not a good way to do. Can you help me?
Thank you ,
Pierre

Please, try the attached scene. It uses a rotation map to define the angle of each blade, so they point out to the cirle's outside

Two important tips:

1) The Forest object must have assigned a surface, to get the UVW coordinates for the rotation map.
2) Be sure to load the map with gamma 1.0, so the pixel values are interpreted correctly.
