Does anyone have any tips on a simple way to make a chain-linked fence in strata?

With thanks,
Mike E.

I think that the simplest way would be to make a repeating texture with a transparency map on a polygon or rectangle plane for each panel (One panel repeated) cylinders or path extruded circles for frames and posts.
In fact; there is a chainlink texture here at StrataCafe. Resources:Textures:Metals. That is a REAL good start.

Yeah I think that will be the easiest. this particular shot does not require a close up. I have a idea on how to actually model it but I will entertain that thought on future date.

Cheers.

I was curious to see how hard this would be, so I ended up creating one - and a litte tut on how to create it... anyway, hope this helps everyone. It was actually pretty simple to do. I did this pretty quickly so it is a little sloppy but you'll get the idea.

cheers!!

Jeff
