specific type of grass in forest pack
« on: May 11, 2021, 09:08:50 PM »
Good evening from Germany :)

For my current project I´m trying to create a specific kind of grass. I don´t know exactly how it´s called so I just linked some images to this post. Basically very tall grass which looks a bit like it was combed in a specific direction. Is there any way to build this in forest pack?

Thanks already for your help!!

Kind regards and stay healthy!

I´m not really sure if I understand how the quick tip video can help me.  :-\ I just watched the whole video again but couldn´t see anything I could use for my situation and what I didn´t know already. It´s more about the look of the grass (that long "bended" grass) and not about how to create huge grass areas with forest pack. Or did I miss anything important in the video?

I don´t have one atm. I thought there was maybe a way to do that completely inside of Forest Pack and with the presets that come with Forest Pack. Like maybe adding the "Wild grass" preset and make it somehow bend in a certain direction. I´m not sure though if that´s possible.

There are bending effects in FP, but You need good 3d model in the first place.

Maybe windswept preset can be a good starting point.

Oh that´s great! I´m working with the grass models from Maxtree. I´d assume their quality is good enough?!

I´ll take a look at that preset and try to find out how the bending was done so I can edit the values if needed.

Thanks a lot!!
