Videos of the foliage tool in action?

Are there any videos of the Foliage tool in action? Can't get my head around the Profile options. I'm trying to creating some hanging plants draped over a pergola but not sure which is the best Configuration to use.

Hi @Christiaan-


There are no videos that I am aware of but I did use it when creating The Power of 3D Modeling webinar. Attached are the same foliage objects used in that webinar. It includes a pergola with draped plants and vines on a wall using a couple of different configurations.

  • Pergola—I used 2-3 foliage objects with configuration mode set to Area - Grid and changed the "z" elevation.
  • Vines on the wall—I used several foliage objects with different heights and set the configuration mode to Linear.

These look good in 3D but I turn them off whenever in Top/Plan view. I hope this helps!
