ive got a park with a stream, lots of forest stuff, all looking ok. there are stepping stones leading down to stream. client is complaining that they are sitting *on* the grass not *in* it. they are flat stones which if i lower them have grass sticking out through the tops of them.
however it seems impossible to neatly cut out holes for the stepping stones. its based on a grass field preset so the clumps are pretty big.
if i use an exclude spline, edge mode is greyed out. (why? that would solve all my issues if i could just have an exclude spline with clean edge mode cuts..)
i cant attach exclude spline to include one, as i have a 1.5m falloff in scale towards boundary spline edges which would be repeated around the stepping stones.
any tricks ive missed? It looks like im going to have to just render the stones again without the grass and photoshop em in. amusingly, this is the first time i think ive found something you *cant* do in FP.
