This video tutorial shows you how easy it is to put the Maxwell Grass Preset Pack into action by taking you behind the scenes of my recently published Fields of Gold image (above). I was able to trick some into thinking this was a photograph when in reality it's a rendering using my presets and a very simple 3d scene in FormZ. It's pretty amazing what we can do with these tools isn't it? I'm obviously loving it.
I also go into some other techniques as well including:
- Some basic NURBS setup tips
- Using 2d cards with textures for realistic trees
- Post processing images in Pixelmator which is my favorite image editing application. You'll see why in this video.
