Plants and Cinema 
By cory9919 on Jul 29, 2005 09:39 AM
Greetings, im new to the site and was very impressed with all the artists here. I came loaded with a question and an open mind.

I am currently trying to learn how to create plants, shrubbery, palm tree style plants, and other related flora for a project im doing. Problem is i dont know how to make any of it and cant find any good tutorials (well...i cant find any tutorials period). can anyone here help me out?

I use Cinema 4D 9.1

Well it depends on how much level of detail you want. for foliage and textures for leaves and such, I suppose you could search it up, also, if you search up mayang's textures on google, you'll find a nice warehouse of textures for all sorts of occasions, although you'll probably have to modify it in photoshop to make it appear right for your 3D model. An easy and quick way of rendering a leaf, and very low polygonal count to boot, is to just get a plane, only have it up to between 4 and 8 polygons, and just bend it like you would want, and then shove on your leaf texture, now here's the fun part, use the alpha channel, and the blank space around the leaf texture will disspear, leaving a floating leaf for you! And since most foliage is so small and 2D anyways, it should do for a basic start :D. Although I'm sure there are better methods in the world, and I'm still a newb, it's a start right?

here's one. I used Cinema 4D GO 5.2, I know I know it's old, but the concepts remain eternally the same. The trick is this: if you're considering making your own painted shrubbery, to be mapped on a billboard polygon for example, check into PD Particles as a way to paint them:

Oh, and you might be able to export some 3D trees from Bryce 5, which is free for a few more days at daz3d.com, here's a starter tute: http://www.thebest3d.com/pdp/tutorials/bryce101

I hope this helps.
