Culling with foliage tool


I have a medium island level and I have used the foliage tool to apply around 3000 trees. Right now I’m trying to optimize this and am looking at the culling options. From what I can tell, the foliage tool only culls either all of them or none of them. Is this true? Is it possible to only cull the ones a certain distance away and how can I do it? The trees go all the way around the island so it would be nice if I could do only a few at a time. Thank you for any help!

To make the culling work properly you need to have the node PerInstanceFadeAmount in the material of the foliage.

It’s easy to incorporate, it just connects to the opacity output.
