Then I got broken into and lost everything from 13 years learning 3D as they took back up drives and all...

Oh, man, that's like everyone's worst nightmare. Sorry to hear about that. I'm pretty good about backups WIPs are stored on Dropbox as well as two local drives plus external backups, then also backed up to optical disk at important benchmarks. But losing the main workstation and external drives would be a real blow, no question.

Your mom's house sounds cool. Those turn-of-the-century homes can be real gems.

"Learned a lot in the process."
no doubt heh heh.
I once measured and built digitally, my Mom's house down to the floorboards and 1900's window trim; inside and out. Then I got broken into and lost everything from 13 years learning 3D as they took back up drives and all...I now disconnect the back ups and hide them when I go out for more than a short while but I still know how to do it again should I be so insanely driven as I own the house.

Are you not running Win 10?...there's a new movie editing app in the latest update. Haven't checked it yet but should be at least as good as Movie maker.
I am running Win 10 ....I checked a few MS sites and what I see so far I have home edition 1703.

That may be the problem as I run Creator as I upgraded from 7 Pro

Your stuff is great! I will explore your suggestions.

Don't get me wrong here, I have supported software and operating systems for over 20 years. I finally bite the bullet and purchase my Terragen license to make simple animations. BOOM Microsoft pulls the plug on moviemaker, removes it from my PC, all without my knowledge or permission in my opinion. So now I can do this in Blender, no problem. It is a little more complicated, but I CAN do it. I just did not need this change at this time thank you very much. Rant over. :)

I am running Win 10 ....I checked a few MS sites and what I see so far I have home edition 1703. maybe doesn't take this? I also see I have an update from 2/18 that failed to install about 15 times....New unit in my possession about a month now, so maybe I have not set stuff correctly yet.  I am just mad it deleted all my visual basic and frameworks on the old one....why???? I could have, I guess, reverted back to 7 or 8, but I still lost those files. It is like with a classic car...."oh...just find some junk yard and get a part for it." Not exactly what you always want to hear, haha.

Haha! That was my first thought. I thought foreground shadow was a muskie or something there in the water. Let's go fishing! We had snow Saturday and Tshirt weather with rain storms yesterday. The birds are chirping tho.

So what a,b ratio do you use on your ground cover, you always do that so well. I assume you keep it tight with small number. Do you use the cache for that also? Does that mean it doesn't have to repop every time?
Sorry for your loss too bobby. It is hard to deal with a loss anytime, but those who we learn from and emulate especially. I feel that is why we are lucky to retain our memories and call on the ones we shared knowing the departed know we keep them close.

The a,b ratio depends usually on the size of the grass and how much coverage I want prior to breaking it up in the Distribution shader's but I use odd numbers which seem to work better,Density shader and yes I try to always Cache pops as that's what it does at rendertime. Saves some time there.
