In their continuous effort to make the use of Forst Pack as easy as possible, Long time blog & challenges sponsor, iToo Software, created a series of five tutorials that explore features of Forest Pack introduced since version 3.6. Four tutorials deal with the creation of the forest object necessary to create the image above while the final tutorial demonstrates features of the forest color material.
This series includes five parts :
- Trees and sunflowers (using exclude areas)
- Road including stones and flowers (Using falloff maps and probability curves)
- Fence, bushes and overgrowth (Create mode, paint areas and inverted falloff maps)
- Striped lawn and ivy (using maps to control transformations)
- Material optimisation and forest color (adding variation with forest color)
