Hey guys, I checked around for a dupe of this but I wasn’t able to find it. Anyways, I’m attempting to create a fall tree canopy in 3d Studio Max. The tree has been modeled and textured and I have geometry leaves with multiple opacity maps, in other words, it takes a while to render.
I’m trying to get a bloom, diffuse glow, whatever you want to call it to show through the canopy. Any ideas. I’ve tried video post, but the effects aren’t great.
I want it to look like this photo:
Notice that it has it transparent leaves where the leaves closer to are actually brighter.
But the bottom line is, I’d like to have some specular bloom/diffuse glow on it. Ideas?
