Custom Leaf mesh - IG mesh = Faster Fay-tracing3DMK TreeLine - Philodendron -Xanadu Hi All, Another render of the latest tree I made for purchase. Although I originally made it using the leaf mesh in GrowFX I found that ray-tracing was too slow with all the alpha mapping in the texture. So I decided to build a custom leaf mesh that was closer to the alpha texture & it rendered much faster....ohh how I hate modeling by hand. Anyway the result was well worth the effort as it rendered much faster and you can even turn the alpha channel if the plant is far enough away from the camera. So remember that sometimes modeling things by hand, such as leaves & flowers is sometimes necessary and that's why the IG MESH is there for us to use. [iG MESH can now also create instances in the latest version] GrowFX was also used to create the actual leaf texture as well as it was impossible to scan or photograph a real leaf properly Hope this helps Jamie
