Creating a forrest of proxy trees

Recommended Posts

Hey has anyone been able to create a forrest of trees along irregular terrain using proxy trees?  Maybe "flock this" could handle this which I don't have?

Hi Steven,

 

You can also use PROXY

works well but you have to adjust the elevation height of the site for each proxy tree, can be tedious for a forest.

 

I use also PLACER DEPOSIT.  you can use reel 3d trees or plan trees (the plugin has an option to orient each trees on the camera)

If you have Xpresionnist, there is an excellent tutorial made by Cristobal Vila many years ago that describe a technique I already used with success.

It is however written in Spanish but I could make it through with Google Translate.

Here is my project complete with tree model and setup. It's 112Mb: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/62778244/RPC_Trees_Collect.zip

 

Cristobal excellent tutorial here:
