Sample text

Initially, I ‘extracted’ the leaves I wanted from the original photo, and then used them to create the alpha channel. 2 There are a few different ways to do this. I could simply create an alpha channel and start painting white around the leaves I want visible using the standard brush tool; but, this takes time and also means the background will remain. I wanted to remove this. I started by creating a 512 × 512 image file. I then copied the source image into this file and scaled it to fit into the square texture page (CTRL + T).

The texture has now wrapped round, revealing any breaks in tiling down the central spine of the texture. Repair this effect using the Heal and Clone tools. With this completed, you can offset the texture again and you should have something resembling Fig. 8. With the texture ready, we can move back to Max and begin construction of the trunk model. Start by creating a cylindrical primitive object roughly the same scale as the reference object. The starting dimensions should be: radius 75 cm, height 700 cm, and segments 10.

12. The layer the leaves are on has the blend mode set to normal. You could easily play around with all the different modes to see the results. One technique may not work every time. It all really depends on the initial reference photo. The issue that I have with the leaves as they are now is that I don’t like the varying colors and lighting from the photograph. In this instance, the color dodge blend mode worked really well to reduce these issues. 13 Obviously, now, the image is oversaturated; so we should use Image > Adjustments > Hue/Saturation to reduce this.
