trying to port blender guru's grass tut to 2.5

Post by Riptyde » Sat Feb 27, 2010 10:35 pm

After successfully completing Andrew Price's tutorial on grass with 2.49, I am now trying to do it in 2.5 (on his website he mentions that he had done this so I know it can be done)

I'm not sure exactly what I'm doing wrong so I'm attempting to post a screen shot of all of my settings. Can some one who is familiar with his tutorial and successfully completed it with 2.5 take a look and let me know what I need to change.

here is a link to his page of the tutorial
http://www.blenderguru.com/the-secret-t ... tic-grass/

A few areas that I'm am certainly confused about are as follows:
1. Under the Extras tab in the particle system he checks the "children" button. This apparently applies the effects to the children particles. I do not see this option in 2.5

2. For the texture to show up in the material he turns the alpha of the material to 0 and sets the "Map input" to "strand" and "map to" to "Alpha". I don't see these in 2.5 either, however I think I may have figured it out.

I've also been having trouble rendering this with my current settings and blender crashes every time I do.

Any help would be appreciated

Thanks
