Grass Texture Behaviour

Recommended Posts

I have created a few grass textures. In the attached image the grass texture creates some annoying horizontal shoots. The higher the density the more shoots I get. In a planter box for ornamental grasses this looks kind strange!  I have included a screen shot of my settings for the texture


Is this a bug or a new type of grass - Herba Vectorworkus  perhaps !  Any help here would be welcome.

Are you using a solid to apply the texture to?  In the case of your box I'd assume 6 sides no matter how "thin" it is.  This is why you see grass coming out of the sides.   Try a 3D poly if this is the case.

To remove the horizontal shoots from a solid do the following:-

- in the objects render tab - under part - 'Overall' apply a texture that has just a colour only

under part - 'Top' apply the grass texture.

You should then get the grass growing upwards only.
