Product Information

  • Required Products: None

Your Digital fae folk need a home, and this dense wood, with its twisted trees and fairy guide stones along a path between perching rocks to a fairy tree, is the perfect place. There are lots of nooks and crannies for all of your supernatural critters to lurk, live, and cast their glamours!

Not only do your digital fairies get two versions of this enchanted landscape (one with plant life and the other full of fairy flutters that glow in the dark), they get lots of extra fairy plants too, including ferns, stylized fairy birch trees with mossy bark and twisted roots which can be planted on cliffs and rocks to show off their gnarly beauty, and even some fairy fox gloves which can glow if you cast the right spell from your materials presets! Also included are loads of saplings and ivy scatters and fairy oaks to further cover the area.

Top Tip: Just click on the scene subset environment you want and your habitat is loaded. It's big with a great deal in it, so if you need to work within it to position your characters, we suggest turning the plants and path groups to invisible in the scene tab until your characters and objects are positioned to your satisfaction, then make them visible again and you're good to go . There are hierarchical material presets which make some elements of the scene glow. Select the DFTW Enchanted Wood Terrain from your scene tab, select and click the pre-set you want, and the magic will happen before your very eyes. All Spells are reversible. And if your magical glow needs a little extra power there is a render present included to up the magic just a little bit by adding bloom to those flutters, fairy flowers, and trees!

All in all, this great big magical bundle provides the perfect home for the wee folk, or in fact, anyone else who happens to fall through that magical portal onto this fairy path through a magical forest guided by glowing pebbles, flutters, and a magical tree whose roots look as if they go down to the center of the earth!

Additional Details

Included in this bundle is a scene subset pre-set up with terrain and foliage/props and one which includes the flutters option, great for day or night. You can add more flutters or use them independently to create even more effects.

To apply the material maps supplied, first select the DFTW Enchanted Wood Terrain from your scene tab, you do not need to select the individual object you want to add the material pre-set too as these work through the item to which they are parented.

Note that the fairy birch trees and the terrain used a layered tilable shader and will only show their true materials in Iray preview or final renders, in preview modes they will look odd.

It is advisable to set your render settings/optimization/instancing optimization to memory as this will help conserve your computers memory and speed due to the high number of instances used in this bundle.
