So this might seem like a stupid question, but how do you insert trees in your render?
Du you just place your .png or .tif in the model and render or is there another approach?
with image-based trees you will never get professional output.
You need real 3d models of trees and carefuly seup their materials.
There is a lot of complex tree models that you can buy. Unfortunately
most of them are in format not supported by Microstation. Check Evermotion
for example. They produce their trees in various file formats (obj. is supported
When you have your trees ready use them as instances with random scale and rotation.
Now you can get nice images even aerial views.
Ooops.. Screen 3 is a wrong image of course. Here is the right one.
Unfortunately not. It is completely modeled i Microstation except cars and trees.
Then it is exported and rendered in different software and postprocessed in Photoshop.
I have wanted to describe basic principle of rendering nice looking trees.
I believe similar output can be achivede wit Luxology. I `m trying to change my workflow
to MS/Luxology but it will take some time...
