realistic grass

Post by skip » Wed May 18, 2022 1:56 am

a fellow MAC user recently sent me a message on how to create realistic grass and I lost it. Please re send me this information. One of the methods was to use scatter, which I have bought, but can't seem to get it to work .

Are you having trouble setting up Skatter in your SketchUp model or when your trying to render a scene that has been successfully set up with Skatter ?

  • Create a "floor" component made from a rectangle
  • Open the Skatter editor
  • Open the Skatter Library
  • Choose one of the grass models from the Skatter library and select "Full Geometry" and "Render Only"
  • In the Skatter editor, click the Hosts - Add button and click on the floor component previously created. Note that the preview will show the grass fully populated on the floor.
  • If not already checked, click and check Render Only in the Skatter editor.
  • Click (re)Generate! I missed this step the first time because the preview populated right away in the last step. But you still MUST click it.
  • Render (probably with Interior/Interior+)

I see no "library" in scatter composition editor, so I assumed it was the 3d bazaar . Am I wrong? if so where is this library?
