LANDSCAPE INFO MASK & RENDERING

At times you will use large Static Mesh formations to enhance your landscape and environment. In order to help these objects truly blend in to their surroundings you can set a Landscape Info Mask, which enables a Clutter Layer to be displayed over the surface.

This gives you the option to add foliage where it otherwise would not be without manually placing it with the Foliage Brush.
