  1. Thanks for your help Tobitobs; I will make more attention about that next time, and will correct it. Here are two new plants : Ivy and bamboo
  2. Two other (mint and laurels)
  3. Hello Want to share my little experience with GrowFx. If anyone have some questions I'll try to answer. Thanks for your indulgence ! Roland
  4. Hi Mentor Really really great modeling (looks like a zbrush model)... My question is simple : how do you make those outgrowth and holes on the trucs of your tree ? Is it difficult for a medium user ? I don't want the attached file ( ), I respect your work ! Thanks a lot Roland
  5. Hi Eduard I found this post in the archives of the forum, because I can't add leaves on my GFX model. I've created an IG modifier on my stem path and when i pick my custom leaf nothing happens... I don't understand why, could you help me ? (in PJ the model) Thanks glycine.max
  6. Waooo Jamie... always amazing. Lots of details and great renders again with this plant. When do you start to make video tutorials ? i think a lot of GFX users could be interested !
  7. No.... it's not a 3d and render, it's impossible ! I've never seen a render as close as an image. Could you tell us more 3DMK ? Have you planned to write a tutorial ? I'm really really impressed about your result, congratulations ! Roland
  8. Hi Eduard I've had some time to look at these questions ans answers you gave me. For bending leaves your solution is great and it works perfectly. But I've asked the question of the geometry of the leaves, as that : when you observe a tree the oldest leaves are at the beginning of the branch, and the youngest at the end. So I was hoping to have a gradient size of leaves from trunk to the end of branches. Is it possible to do, as with the branches (I've not found any way to have smallest branches to biggest from the top to the bottom of the trunk too...) ? Thanks ! Roland
  9. Waoooooo !! Amazing !! Can't wait for that ! It's Christmas time Eduard !!
  10. Hi Eduard Thanks (again !) for all those answers. I'm really happy that every subject for GrowFx is a research source for you. This is another reason why I continue to use it ! Think that the question of implement the collision is more important that the other demand... but all is important for you I suppose ! Well... one other question, about how to make a sculpt bark trunk like that... not only at the bottom ot the tree... (and not in Zbrush !) If it is possible, do you think that the mesh at the intersection of the trunk and branches will be ok ? Thanks Roland
  11. Hi Eduard 1 and 2... how ? Well this post is also very interesting , on how you can model a self-adaptating tree from an environment... is it possible with GrowFx ? I asked myself a question too : is there a way to prevent the collision of the branches and leaves ?
  12. Hi ! I've discovered a really really nice thread in the Ronen's forum, witch talks about the making of realistic trees and especially foliage. These are in the monstrous topic (16 pages today) some questions Eduard and regular users here could ask I think. I noted some comments (responses on the words in bold ?) and hope to have yours... I will post some (if it's interested to) when I will have read all the thread ! From Islant : "I think as some have said, imitating reality 100 is quite difficult, an important thing to have real trees is that the leaves are never the same geometrically, most are bent (not are a simple plane), others have more thickness, the young have a deeper green than the old, etc ... these are all factors that influence the level of translucency". 1/ Do you think it's possible to have different geometry for the leaves (bigger on the beginning and in the middle of a branch, smaller at the end per example) ? 2/ Is it possible to bend some leaves and have other not ? 3/ Is it possible to control the thickness (think is easier with a shader) of leaves ? Well... I read I read and I'm completely inside ! Thanks ! Roland
  13. Hi ! There was a topic on a making off Agave here : http://exlevel.com/forum/index.php?/topic/300-agave-americana/ Maybe it will interest you
  14. Waooo Paul you're the GrowFx encyclopedia ! Your answers are really really helpful for us. I'm copying your posts in a "How to" that I will have in front of me... Thanks a lot !
