I am SO proud to announce that my grass presets are now available for SketchUp users who render with Maxwell! This is something that you'll only find on Method, and I'm excited to be offering it up for you architects and designers to make your life easier.
When I first started using the grass extension, I was just making these presets for my own use. I spent hundreds of hours creating and tweaking these presets and materials over the last year. Then I thought about how many other designers could probably use it too. So I bundled it all together and even made some videos to teach you how to use it.
I hope you love using it as much as I've had creating it. I'm sure it'll help take your skills and renderings to the next level.
My love of learning new (to me) photographic techniques has blended into my 3d rendering and visualization endeavors. I've posted another short video tutorial showing how to get nice, creamy depth-of-field in your renders using Maxwell and FormZ over on Method. If you're using Maxwell, it really doesn't matter what modeling program you're using - the same information applies. If you're not using Maxwell, check it out and see if it's something you might want to try.
