Creating Realistic Grass

CGWorkshop training published a new video tutorial about realistic grass creation in 3ds max using VRay displacement and the Advanced Painter Script. This video is the first of the environment creation series and you also get the base scene model so you can follow along.

The creation process goes from making the actual deformed mesh that the grass will be displaced on and then painting actual mesh strands using the Advanced Painter script.

You will need to register to CGWorkshop website before you can see the video, that is why I do not directly link you to it.

    looks like that the tutorial is not working.

    • Rechecked it just now – works fine… needs registration though. I suggested pawel to make it available on Vimeo too – I hope it will be online soon.

      • Please try the FF or googlechrom. Should work nice. I will upload all tutorials on vimeo soon. Thank you Ronen for this great post.

    I had to click on Tutorials and play the video, but the video hangs.

    I am logged in and still can not click the link. All the links below ENVIRONMENT PART 1 are working. When I click on “read more” I get to a new page. Strange.

    But, when I search for ENVIRONMENT PART 1 on the side I get to right page. Or just click on Tutorials on the upper right side. It is working as well. Cool

    here the direct link form the beginning of the Tutorial:

    Thanks a lot !!

    This technique is too old.

    • Well, grass is just grass… And this method will get you going in almost all cases.

      But say, what did you have in mind?

  • gerrard sanders

    I thought of many people around me used this technique, therefore I wrote that is old. I am surprised he will not mention.

  • Thanks guys. I will check on our admin about that video. I have played it few seconds ago and there was no problems. Anyway please report when more errors will occur. That’s very valuable feedback for future tutorials.
