my contribution of seasonal color.

  trail head 4b.jpg 

below is the summer scene of the same model posted here some time ago.
  • I switched summer leaf foliage components with autumn leaf foliage components
  • thinned out the canopies a bit
  • added the fallen leaves to the ground plane and other horizontal surfaces (using my favorite plug-in)
  • adjusted the fern leaf texture file to a less vibrant green. 
then rendered the scene

followed by a little pp,
  • naturalized the edges where stone and dirt meet. I was lucky to still have the original photoshop file so all I had to do was drop in that layer.
  • I duplicated the image two more times, adjusting the color of each a little bit towards yellow,  then masked and repainted random areas in the foliage to get the variation as the leaves in the model were all one component and therefore each tree type had one leaf color. this naturalized the whole scene just a little more.
And that's how we went from summer to autumn in a couple of hours work.

What plug in did you use for the drop of the leaves?  

 

https://extensions.sketchup.com/es/content/dropgc maybe?

 

Love the transformation of the landscape, have you tried making an "alien" environment or some sci-fi using your landscape knowledge and skills?

Component spray. Same one I promoted in a different post. I haven’t ventured into any alternate realities... yet. I suppose if there is some calling for it I could entertain the idea.

I can't for the life of me get Comp spray to install in Sketchup 2017. I've used the sketchucation extension manager to install as well as tried manually. I've dumped the folders in the HD library as well as the user library - I deleted the folders from each library every time i tried a different location.Rebooted sketchup each time and nothing works. Any ideas?

 

Cheers.

Wow! I wish I knew more. I'm using 2017 pro and I use the auto install feature. I usually get a pop up window asking me to chose where to save it and I select here. All is well, use it constantly. Sorry I could not be more help.

I'm almost certain the developer is on top of things and engaged in the development of his plugins. Maybe, if you haven't yet already, post this question to the thread associated with the plugin. Perhaps there is a conflict with another plugin. That happens sometimes.
