MR proxy grass
show user profile  npcph
I am working on an outdoor scene and am trying a new trick to make the grass. I was trying an MR proxy. So what i have done already is created 4 different blades of grass. I made a proxy out of each. then i created a 1'x'1 plane and was able to paint the grass onto the plane. that worked fine. Now i want to create a proxy out of the 1' of grass so i can fill in a large area with the grass.

My question is, is it possible. I have been trying but i can not get it to allow me to choose all the blades of grass that i painted onto the 1'x1' plane. IPlease let me know if there might be a trick or something.

I use a similar method but i wouldn't proxy each blade into the 1ft square. I just make it a mesh - it's not too massive in the grand scheme of things.

Make your 1ft square, attach all the blades, then proxy the 1'x1' lump?

Yup.
Use meshes to populate your 'clump.
THEN make your clumpo an instance.

No reason not to do it this way....you ultimately end up with an instance.
