Easy Grass - Plugin

Post by Ariusfx » Sun Nov 05, 2017 7:22 pm

Hey Guys! So I've been messing around with Xpresso lately and I thought I'd make something for the Cycles community :D

So, all in all, it's just a really easy way to add grass to your scene!

(I am still working on this as a fun little project so any feedback on what I could improve or if you find any bugs would be amazing!)

The Cycles material and texture is in the file structure!

If you need any help understanding what things do just ask your questions here! :D

Maybe add grass density controls and fix position, scaling, and sliders (lower values, correct type, not degrees etc.)

I don't like the idea to use a plugin for Xpresso rig, make it simple, hide in layers.
But well done.

Neither do I but it's the closest I can get without having to learn python, There's just not enough hours in the day for me to learn it.

Thanks!

UPDATE
    • Improved UI.
    • Better Performance Stability for lower spec PC's.
    • Improved Distribution Method.
    • Removed Position Modifiers as were rendered useless due to the new Distribution Method.
    • Spline Rendering using the native `cyCurve Tag` & `Cycles Hair BSDF`.
    • UV Point Display.
    More to come in the future.
