Hello fellow Enscapers.
I hope this finds yous all well and happy.
I am a bit frustrated at the moment.
Just a wee bit more than that I am afraid, to be honest.
As my story goes, I come here looking for answers from yous talented peoples, because the grass in my first render in Enscape looks like it has some sort of terrible disease. It is clumpy and full of these odd little void-a-roos. Where is the beautiful grass from all the beautiful renders I saw from yous in the gallery?
Here is a screen shot to show yous what I see, and after many frustrating minutes, trying many different settings, left and right and all over the place, this is the best looking grass I have been able to achieve so far. As you can see it is ever bit as terrible as I mention. It looks a wee bit as lumpy and bumpy as my own yard, and a bit as ugly as my ex-wife, but I didn't say that, and if this was an actual house, on an actual street, you may say to yourself, that looks a lot like Skip's yard. Not exactly the look me's clients are looking for when yous trying to sell the dream - eh? I am a bit embarrassed to show this to my clients to be honest and I feel I may have to end up breaking out my photoshop skills (nothing too impressive I assure you) as none of the tricks I have read in these forums seem to fix'r up. Not exactly the results I was expecting or hoping for out of Enscape. Surely, I must be doing something wrong wouldn't you say?
Last years I was using Lumion and the grass was excellento (at least for what I need). Here is a screen shot of the grass from one of my Lumion renders for yous to see, and in my humbly opinion, I feel this grass looks much, much better and all my clients love, love, love it. Skip you are a superstar - here's lots of money, they say. Life is good. Drinks on me! The Lumion grass looks well manicured, healthy, and appealing. Bada bing, bada boom! Exactly what you want when you are marketing new homes and selling the dream. There is no clumping and voids in the grass like there is in Enscape. Why so?
I have tried different lighting scenarios, etc. like I have seen suggested in these here forums. I have tried different grass textures, me's and Enscapes, and that doesn't seems to helps either. Maybe my graphics card capabilities?? but I am using the same computer that made the Lumion render - so what gives? I don't feel I should have to use fancy skatter techniques in SketchitUP or do a lot of trickery in photoshop to get good results. It should just be good right out of the box, no? Like Lumion! Easy peasy, lemon squeezy. What dos you alls think am I missing or what dos yous think I need to do to get better results?
Thanks and Cheers!
