I decided to build a Blender file using some forest assets I have kicking around on my hard drive. In the future I can open this file as a quick way to copy paste these assets into a new project. Some times I completely forget I have assets on my hard drive that I have never assembled or used so by making some Blender files to have at the ready with assets ready to go is a great way to save time and work smarter. So far other Projects I have are Rocks and some procedural landscapes. Also this way I can weed out bad or error prone assets that might mess things up when I just want to work fast and build a scene. For example In the past I have used some trees in Blender and they made a mess and bogged down my project but I know these chosen assets are tested and good to go. I even made an image plane with a bushes alpha texture which casts tree shadows on the ground. I decided not to use any displacement to keep things lite on computer but the results look decent and I could plug those in later should I need that level of detail.
I had no plans to show this project but once I started messing around with the Blender Physical lighting plugin I was surprised that the results looked good and why not share a video. If anyone is interested in that plug in there is a link in the description of the Video.
