Title: Leaves: maps vs geometry
Post by: Rokas on January 23, 2018, 03:22:21 PM
In free Cedrus model there are needles as opacity maps. Are all modes with leaves as opacity maps or broad-leaved trees have geometry leaves?

Hey Rokas,

Thanks for the questions. Most of the trees use geometric leaves, it's just a few trees that have loads of leaves or awkward shaped leaves (like the cedrus) that use opacity maps. It was a case with these of balancing the poly count against the use of opacity maps.

Cheers,

Paul
