Is there a way to control color or at least reduce the saturation of some of the trees?
If not, then I'll put it on the wish list:)
I like the color movie effects, but this affects the whole image.
Thanks!

Currently not specifically the trees. But since we might add a method for color variations we can look into other colors as well. I do think frank will know how but that is not an official method!

That would be great!
In the meantime, it would be useful to edit the tree map in an image editing app like Photoshop.
Is this possible? If so, what directory are the tree maps located?
Thanks again!

Ask frank in the galery you can see his post with custom trees. I am not sure our Speedtree license allows users to change the trees. Would have to look that up.

@marvil:

You can edit the dds-maps of the trees in Photoshop. Open Programfiles/Lumion/Trees/ ... Folder of the tree you want to edit. In there are two diffuse-maps for different LOD. Open  BillboardAtlas_Diffuse.dds and TextureAtlas_Normal.dds in Photoshop or Gimp and edit them to change color.

But make sure to have copy of the originals Wink

@Frank:

Thank you!

@Ferry

I installed the dds plugin for PSCS5 (x32), tried opening and got a "could not parse file" error. I guess this could be due to the speedtree licensing issue.
