Creating Grass in Blender

Grass is just about everywhere outside, so it’s really handy to know how to render it well. This course covers everything you’ll need to make your own: modeling, shading, particle instancing, animation, and more! We’ll cover two different ways of creating grass – hair particles and mesh particles. Since they both have their advantages and disadvantages, we’ll cover why you would want to use one over another, or the best ways to use them in combination.

Introduction

Hair Grass

Mesh Grass

Adding Grass to a Scene

Create believable grass for animation or VFX

Grass is tricky to get right, but if you set it up once you can reuse and tweak it again and again extremely quickly.

  • modeling
  • shading
  • particle instancing
  • animation
  • weight painting
  • and more!

    Can the grass in this tutorial be used in a video game environment, or is this only useful for renders/scenes?

      This would only be useful for VFX and animation. I’m hoping to do a course focused on game environments in the future which would include that.

      • A game environment course would be pretty nice. I’m completely new to game design, but a course for environments either in Unity or Blender (I’m not even sure what should be done where) would be pretty beneficial to me.
