After looking at your .blend I’m truly amazed :o . You have what, 9, 10… particle emiters with DupliVerts, with 30000 particles on each emiter? Unless you’re working on a Cray with ram in the tera-byte range, you’re going to crash when you run out of memory. I tried to render one frame 320x240, I went through 384meg ram, then crashed when the 10gig of virtual memory on the harddrive ran out. :wink:
It would be a nice scene if it would render. :slight_smile:

it’s alot but I could not think of an nothere way to create the trees.
I had the trees done a few weeks agow and It rendered fine. But now that I want to do more than a test render. I dont know what I did do do this. Can you give me any sugestions on how to create the trees like I have them but with a smaller polygon count.
I still want them to create the realistic shadows

Thanks for any help,
Ifandbut :slight_smile:

You may be able to make something using PlantStudio.

It runs on Winblows but it works ok. Make the plant/tree then save as VRML-1 , open in blender and save as a .blend then you can use ‘shift-f1’ to import into your scene. Also there is a tree generator script for blender??, I’ve seen reference to it on the forums but don’t know anything about it, you may try a search to find it.

There’s a great L-System tree/plant generator with sample plants in the form of a Blender Plugin here:

I haven’t gotten it to work on windows or OS X, I get missing module errors on both OS’s Your grass generator works really really great though.

Thanks for your help.
I have the tree maker script for windows but I get the same errors.
I’ll see if PlantStudio will work for me.

Thanks again,

what’s the error message that you get for the Lsystem script?

Did you set your PythonPath correctly in Blender?
