How to - Make some basic leaves

PostThu Mar 06, 2014 2:51 am

Make leaves!

So Iv been asked a few times to add a leaf painting tool to Tee It, So Im going to do a tutorial on how you can make leaves from a single leaf texture directly in treeIt.

1) We start off with a new project.

2) We are going to setup the trunk a bit, disable crinkly X by checking "lock X" and set the radius to low value with curvature on a low value.
Image

3) We are now going to add some branches "lock X" to disable crinkly X and add a bit more crinkliness. This is the important bit to Y rotate the branches by 180°.
Image

4) Next to is apply some leaves and a texture, we can also use vertex color boxes to add some color randomness. Left-click on a color box to apply color right-click to remove it.
Image

5) Now Y rotate the leafs by 180° and Z rotate the leafs 90°, leaves should now be completely flat.
Image

6) Final adjustments to size and length.
Image

7) Now go in to 2d view mode and disable lighting. we can also press the randomize button until we get some leaves we like the look of.
Image

8) Open render to texture tool and save image, we can also use cropping or "render to texture helper" prior to centralize the leaves into the correct position.
Image

9) Save this tree just in case we want to come back to it. now we have a leaves texture we can make some nice looking trees with lots off leaves applied.

Thank you, that is very useful! Unfortunately this forum/product seems abandoned, could you please look into this question?
