[Q] Limey grass

Postby valerostudio » Wed Feb 03, 2016 11:41 am

Anyone else find the textures for the library grass a bit limey? I have photoshopped the saturation down about 35% on the 3 blade textures and it renders much more realistic to me. The yellowness of it seems little nuclear.

Did you lower the saturation on your render, or on the texture files themselves?

I lowered the saturation on the texture files in the Skatter library, down about 40%. They just seemed really yellow to me. A couple of clients made comments that the grass was too "neon green". Maybe I am just shooting for more of a Kentucky Bluegrass color because that's what are used to seeing locally.

One thing I loved was the AutoGrass plugin for Max. You had a few varieties of grass types, which was really a lovely plugin to work with.

I altered the grass files for the same reason you mentioned - lowering the yellow, increasing the blue and resulting in a cooler green.

I guess it's a question of "cultural taste".
Here in Belgium I feel Thomas' grass is great, if a bit saturated.
There a lot of clients that like "happiness" more than "realness" so the saturation please them.
And the yellow hue gives more warmth than a strict cool green.

Example: For me:

is clearly too green-saturated
and

is too dark and cold, and too desaturated.

This

is neutral and

this

is nicely happier (and very close to Skatter default grass).
