could there be any way to use a vertex selection or something (maybe with mel) to randomly add all the leaves? if someone has allready done something like that and discovered a good workflow or knows a tool or script plz let me know.
info: those trees will be used for a realtime renderer, so bump and normal maps will be included.
MMM, maybe this answer isn`t weird, but, you can use the Veu Xtreme software to made hyper-realistic lands (trees are awesome) with Maya`s link, also can export the object with its respective textures (bump included) or simple, use paint efects
