Instructions and helpful tips when using the setup in your custom scene

· Put the surface you want to cover with grass in the Chaos scatter's “Distribute On” box
· Adjust the clone count according to the surface size

The best clone count is more or less 200 for each square meter, so if you have a:

· 2m x2m surface = 800 clones
· 3m x3m surface = 1.800 clones
· 4m x 4m surface = 3.200 clones
· 10m x 10m surface = 20.000 clones

· Make sure your surface is not perfectly smooth but a little wavy
· Make sure your grass has a low sun backlight to trigger a proper translucency effect
· If you have no sunlight in your scene, adjust the tone mapping to get a perfect look: higher exposure, more contrast, warmer white balance
· Enable Camera Clipping to make the grass exist only in camera field of view and get faster render time

An example of what you can get by decreasing the amount of clones

All my Cinema 4D and Corona scenes are hand made polygon by polygon and include light setup, materials, textures, camera settings, final PSD with adjustment layers (if needed), furniture and props with a high level of detail. You can use them to improve your visualizations or learn from the files, moving inside the project, observing how light was created and handled, how materials are developed, and the values that fill every single option.
