View Full Version : wind waves in grass

03 March 2011, 03:32 PM

Does anyone know how to achieve this effect?
My setup is a Hair system controlling Fur-grass.

I've tried connecting a projected, animated texture to Magnitude of an Air field, but it seems not to be compatible.

i had some luck with this type of look by animating paint effects modifier objects through my simulation as well as the built in paint effects grass turbulence..however i was using paint effects not fur and hair.

My only guess here would be to add some volume fields with turbulence and a definite axis of influence for your hair system.
good luck

A volume axis field with turbulence should do the trick. Animate the turbulence offset in the direction of the wind to get travelling waves.
