    Description:

    Hi guys.
    I, having some fun with PFlow and Vray. Im trying to make it as realistic as possible cause Im about to take on a job with lots of grass. I know some o the blades of grass dont have enough detail but this is just a test. Material wise just a vraymaterial with a gradient ramp applied to the diffuse and refract channels. Vraysun and sky. C&C are very welcome.
    Thanks for watching. God bless.
    Nelson.

    Very close to the camera it could use some photoshop, but for farther away it looks good. It is easy to handle this?
    Is there a reason you have choosen Pflow instead of other grass-techniques?

    the main reason is because is easy to set up and all procedural, so if you dont like the grass blade you change it and whole systems changes.
    Thanks for the comments.

    It took about 15min to get the grass as I liked it. There are actually 2 ways to do this: one is purely using PFlow and the other one is using PFlow and a plugin called vrayscatter (or multiscatter). Both methods work very nicely and you can scatter the along any geometry. Hope it helps. Good luck.

    in your first example, the downfall I see is the lack of variation in the grass. It looks great but unrealistic to have the grass strands all in the same direction. I think adding some variety to the direction of the blades will really make the grass awesome
