  1. Seen this over at g-a.net forums. Really nice workflow you've got there, thanks for sharing.

  2. As I said in another comment, I've always wondered what was vertex painting was and now I know! I'll try to make mix maps for grass displacement in archviz and let you know the results...

  3. would it be possible to get a copy of the model itself as I am useless with 3DS Max.
