AccuRender nXt

advanced rendering for AutoCAD

Is there any way to  change the normal of the groundcover's grown plane?

I just tried applying it to a vertical surface but, though it works, the leaves they are always growing in the Z-Vector direction.

Thanks Ugo, now it is pretty clear and I find it definitely interesting. I will try as soon as I have to represent a groundcover. Thanks again!

Please, keep in mind AutoCad in this case, has many ways to make surface types which accept materials and can be rendered adequately. Some are memory demanding. The extrude-region method is just the way I do it and it results in a low-poly count. My AutoCad customization makes it look as the old style Icon-Flyout layout, but that's just because I made it that way, instead of having to learn to use the Ribbon which I consider a waste of time for the steps involved. The good thing is that you can make your own groundcover styles and there are many uses to it. Just takes time to build a good crisp images base of flowers, leaves, etc.. Here is an example: The first one is the original image:

This second one was enhanced in brightness, contrast to improve the groundcover results:

Good Luck!

Packaging this steps and submitting to the help and tutorial section of support will help a lot of folks as in a few weeks time this valuable information will be buried in the forum and never be found except by few folks who remember it existed in the first place and are able to dig it out.

"The settings are very likely fine-- the kinds of things that create noise are indirect daylighting and glossy reflection.  This image has a lot of that.  ArStudio will likely handle this much better-- it's got a built-in denoiser."

"Thank you George."... I always avoid to change material - colour - surface quality on the outer corners, but only on inner ones. " - So do I.  Client's wish.  :)"
