Xgen Problem: Grass hides behind / under surface



I am doing a real estate project and are currently working on the grass. I am using xGen to generate it.

My problem is that on some spots on the surface the grass happens to appear mostly under the surface. This would not have been a problem if the length of the primitives where longer, but if i make them longer it does not look good.

Please look at this screenshot, it should illustrate my issue.

Kind Regards


Xgen does smooth the growing surface. You have todo the same with the terrain.


If you use groomable splines instead, you get an option for “Elevation” under the grooming tab that solves that issue.


As noted above, XGen binds to the subdivision limit surface so the geo it is bound to needs to subdivided in the VP and renders for it to line up correctly.
