There was a request previously on the forum about creating trees and vegetation from @inteja . While browsing the internet yesterday that I ran across a tutorial presented at this years Blender conference :

The Holy Grail of Plant Creation - Julius Harling

Published on October 25th, it goes from start to finish - so it may be useful to @inteja (with his Aussie vegetation) and others.

cheers, gryff :slight_smile:

Thanks @gryff!

@Vinc3r and @Deltakosh Why is this thread so hard to find when you are logged in? It is not listed in the "Content Creation … " subsection unless I am logged out.

It is an important thread for people who are looking for resources.

cheers, gryff :slight_smile:

It is actually pinned so I have no idea why :frowning:

@Deltakosh : it is showing up now.

gryff -> bangs head on desk :face_with_raised_eyebrow:

I gather NVidea has a suite of Texture Tools out that can be used to create amongst other things .dds and HDR files. Not tried myself yet.

There is a hardware requirement I believe - NVidea video card so …

Any might be useful.

I have added a thread about a new Blender 2.8 addon for creating buildings quickly. Should be much easier and less time consuming to create streets and villages now. Use instances for improving speed etc.

Stay Safe, gryff :slight_smile:
