Hi Alessandro,

Could you give us a few more details. What problem are you experiencing when working with the Gradient Ramp?

Many thanks,

Paul

Hi Alessandro.

Seems to be working fine for me:



The only difference I can see between this and your version is that you are using Map Channel 2. I've attached the file for you to take a look at if it helps.

Cheers,

Ah! Unless you're not using a surface? Transform by map requires a surface to work correctly in order to extract the correct mapping coordinates.

Thanks,

Well there's certainly nothing wrong with using mapping channel 2 (or any other). The only caveat is that if you change the mapping on the surface after adding it to Forest Pack you'll need to ensure you update the surface reference by clicking  in the surfaces rollout.

small resolution impossible to apreciate 2 different grass groups one as main an the other as irregular strips



if I deform the main surface now to have irregularity will I have some further issues?

Looks nice :) Should be fine to adjust the main surface, as long as you update in the surface rollout afterwards as described above.

Cheers,
