Hello

One of my tutors showed me how to make grass with a particular plug in with LW 9.6 on a PC but sadly i cannot find it in LW 10 on my mac

Is there any other way I can create realistic grass and if I need to purchase a plug in, which one would you guys recommend?

Many thanks

Try FFX or DPInstance (from DPont), those are 'free' solutions...

Search DPont in google, you should find his website and the downloads there. FiberFX is LW10 native, so you should have this installed. Both are Mac compatible as far as I know :).

Ive been fiddling with FiberFX for a few hours and managed to get quite realistic hair on the go on a small surface and I have been rendering frames as jpegs after every tweek of the parameters etc

I am confused as when i switched to the VPR view mode, the pixel filter doesnt show, but if i out it back to Textured Shaded Solid, it appears fine.

Is this the norm? if so why?

Many thanks

There is a specific thread about FFX in this forum. Perhaps somebody else in here can point you at it.
