Starting with a picture i like…
It’s a bit older but still tells a bit about the mood of the things i like to create – and maybe also about me.
If You’re more interested in technical stuff You can see some self created fur on the cat (vray) – and some paramteric plants – trees, shrubs but also the grass and flowers. I love the way this works making individual stuff like this possible (also ready to animate as it is parametric) – it’s done with ‘forester’ which sadly is only available for cinema4D
Ha, it works! I will improve the front page to display the blog entries in a grid overview 🙂
Yes it works 🙂
Will just use it a bit differently now that i understand how it is meant – with an overview and multiple topics, not a single blog
But i will wait until that overview is finsished so i can adapt to that 🙂
By the way, there are some nature assets originally made for Blender, but available also for C4D, it is called Graswald3d.
Thanks for the link – this looks amazing!
Quality of the nature is brethtaking – and of course this can look better than something parametric – if used for stills (like i do) — for movement or different instances of the same species looking different a parametric solution (with a ‘seed’ that by changing creates individuals) has it’s advantages
Also the cloning tool looks very similar to forester – with those distribution maps and so
Only drawback in my eyes is the subscription thing 🙁
If there were a ‘buy it’ version i could imagine i would have bought it already 😉
Oh, there were both volumes to buy 😉
(Graswald and the so called Ellenriede Forrest)
For the parametric approach they have GScatter on board which was developed a while after scatter/geoscatter was on the market. However I‘m using geoscatter.com instead, for various reasons.
More in the nature thread I‘ll start this weekend.
They WERE 😉 — it’s in the FAQ they no longer do that 🙁
And the model is not to my personal taste. For the subscription You get some ‘coins’ to get the assets – so far so good – but they expire after 2 months. This is not a model i appreciate.
Would be super for my own business – only possible as subscription, so You pay in advance – and if the products i create new do not fit Your needs or are not so good i still keep the money as it expires anyway (i know this is harsh as an example but basically it is like that). I would love such a business mocdel but think also my customers would become ex-customers that way 😉
Same with Graswald – potential customer lost because of strange payment model…
Geoscatter is something different than parametric approach. I like the geoscatter they have ant it resembles closely the one i have in forester – similar functions. With parametric i meant the plants! I can not put in a pucture here but when is open a plant (or create a new one) i can define the parameters on how it looks – that way creating anything i want (if i know the biological specifications) These are infos like general parameters, infos about the trunk, attachments to the stem like protrusions, different levels of branch control, dieffernt levels of leaf control, especially about distribution, fruit control meaning to add any mesh in a defined way and ending with gimmicks like snow 😉 It’s all just sliders that way making very individual trees possible
You can get some presets for common plants – but can create any plant You like with the parameters included. In addition it is slim as only parameters are stored and mesh created at desired level of detail.
As i wrote the backdraw is the quality, which is nice for a parametric model but of course can not be the same as a scanned mesh that is only altered.
