Another vegetation test this time using the object paint tool in 3ds max. I used it to paint a leaf object into the area between two planes. It was a quick test so I haven’t tidied it up properly, there are some leaves that intersect the other planes and some that are floating in mid air but this can fixed quite easily. This technique could be used to scatter any object across a model such as gravel, rubbish, trees etc.
I used 3 different leaf materials, in varying stages of decomposition.
