In this movie, I only used two textures, from a bush and a tree.

1: I wrap them on a surface or solid.
2: In reflectance, I use constant, Because it is not affected by light and shadow.
3: Wrapped mask
4: None
5: Arbitrary Plane

Remember: A block does not destroy texture, even if we scale it.

I rubberstamp these two blocks beyond the terrain.
I change the scale and rotate some random, and rubberstamp again.
Select more and more, and rubberstamp.

Rembember this ice blocks, and you can stamp out thousands.

And finally I made the video.

Kai,

thank you  for sharing.

"Some blocks are filled with grey."  Ummm, very strange.  :-\

I cannot say for sure, but, it might be that the rendering engine is just "missing" these.  Perhaps you could remove the affected trees and try again, or, adjust the border of the objects/blocks which you have the images wrapped to.  Does the problem repeat, in the same way, when rendered again? IMSI support might offer a better solution?

It is very difficult to find them. I have seen this gray texture pop up in all versions, back to 14.

Here is the TurboCAD file, saved with ePac, so you also have the textures.
If you have TCPP20 and AL5.1, you can try. Just unzip the file and open it.
You just have to change to Window 3 skog.TCW Camera1 and then Play the scenario.

Ummmm!  As far as I can tell, it looks like there is some problem with the masks.  Photos/images with fuzzy edges, like hair or leaves, can confuse the programme used for making these images, and, this might be causing the artifacts to appear in TC.

I could be wrong, but that's the best thing I can come up with.  :(

Have you considered using genuine 3D models for your plants/trees?  Used carefully, this might give a better result using 64-bit and 8GB ram.

Just wondered if the TC file could be saved back to v19 (I don't have v20 yet - due to get it in a week or two).

The images is jpg. Maybe bmp will work better.
I will try later.

Thanks Tim and Kai.

I had a play and the only thing I can think of is that TC may sometimes get confused with the multiple overlapping objects, I isolated the 'odd' ones, rotated and rescaled them and some others to reduce the amount of overlap, and after closing and re-opening the drawing the amount of grey was reduced, though I don't know if this was due to the alteration or just luck.

If it happens again you could think about keeping the trees apart (close but not actually touching each other), just a thought.
