Title: Need to Stripe Grass (Mowing Lines)
Post by: LB1651 on August 20, 2018, 08:57:22 PM
I've found the following tutorial (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cUIBzd2NOqY) and it works, but it makes the grass surface very bumpy and irregular. 

I need to figure out a way to create stripes in the color of the grass without adding the bumpiness to the grass surface (essentially just a gradient overlay that sits on top of the forest distribution). Any ideas on how to do this? 

Thanks!

Hi,
There is a Forest Color map for this. Use As texture on surface mode. Documentation reference (https://docs.itoosoft.com/forestpack/forest-color)

Hey Rokas, thanks for the response.  Looking at the documentation, this is exactly what I need.  I don't fully understand how to implement the stripes though.  Where do I need to put the ForestColor Map for this to work?  Do I still need to create the Gradient Ramp within the ForestColor or should I be looking for some sort of preset? 

EDIT:  I've attached images of the grass in the viewport and the same grass in a render.  It looks like it should work in the viewport, but the render keeps coming out without the variation.

Try selecting "get color from map" not using it as a texture
