I often need to surround my scene with background trees. Here is a method to get it done in a hurry. I have attached a .dae of the treecircle that you can use. The original model came from the Sketchucation Forum as a free resource. You can find the original set of treelines donated by "Oli" in .skp format in the materials and resources forums as "Curved Tree Line"

I created a ring of trees and just imported it into Lumion. At street level it fills in the background holes very well from any angle.  

In the example I used Photoshop to make the treeline blend better. If you mask out a line along the tops of the trees you can filter it with ....brushstroke/spatter......then a 1pixel gaussian blurr. This helps to add air to the tree tops so they don't look cut out.

When making movies the movement helps to make the blend for you and in most cases with careful shot selection it works pretty well.

Many thanks for this modelhead.

We will all need to contribute one ourselves to build a useful community resource.  Tree lines, buildings, cityscape lines etc.

Thanks modelhead!

I think Lumion forum must add a thank you icon, where we can just click to say thank you.

Regards,

Hey guys you are welcome. I think that the forum could use a place to post resourses/giveaways..etc. I think there might be more contributions if there was a spot to leave them....cheers!!

Is there a texture on the .dae?  All I show is a gray ring.

I know on most jobs I have items that work well that I would like to give away. It seems out of place to leave items in the gallery. I'm sure the guys will add a facility at some point. :-D
