I’ve added my first Autumn render of the year, “Panoply“, to the Members Gallery this evening. I have long wished the Vue d’Esprit would allow for varying the foliage colors on individual trees but sadly that feature hasn’t arrived yet.

I’m trying a new technique here using Vue’s new “360” instancing to create “Ecosystem” trees. Basically I’ve planted thousands of smaller trees onto larger tree models (trees are fractal by nature after all) and varied the colors that way.

Let me know what you think. I haven’t perfected the process yet but I like the results so far! Look for an update in the days ahead.
