Very cool tut Carl.

Question for you....do you know of any advanced masking techniques for trees, bushes etc? Reason I'm asking is because I'm getting into architectural visualization (though I'm no architect ) and I'm was thinking of purchasing some textures from got3d.com http://store.got3d.com/products/55-t...res/index.html

But I thought maybe I can take a crack on creating my own. People, cars and other things I can do but it's the trees, leaves and bushes that give me a problem.

Are you aware of any masking techniques to get in between the leaves?

Yes, there are several ways to do this. Probably the most effective is to look at each channel independently and determine which one has the greatest contrast, then duplicate that channel. Use levels to increase the contrast further and make an alpha channel mask. Try Russel Brown's site for some cool tutorials on this type of work

Thanx for the link bro I'll be sure to check it out. After I posted this I remebered something we learned in school way back then about using channels and adjusting levels for masking things like this...sure enough I had my notes still, not exactly what I was looking for but got me headed in the right direction.

Thanx again.

Carl, you will find so many uses for masking techniques. I use them frequently to apply effects to specific areas while not affecting the global values.
