Scattering forest object
« on: July 20, 2021, 12:12:47 AM »
Hi there,
sorry to ask here but I cant find an answer with the keywords "scattering forest pack & geometry" ! ^^
I would like to know if it's possible to scatter sets of plants for example, into circle areas then scatter the generated forest object into another one to cover a surface ?
Is there any tutorial around, or infos ?

Thanks !

JG

Hi JG,

That's the recommended way for scattering small plants over large areas and it should work more or less as you describe. The only thing you may need to change to make this work in some renders or in some older versions of Forest Pack is that instancing may need to be turned off for the small nested patch object.
