In this class we are going to learn how to create our own trees!
If you ever tried to make a nature scene or an exterior archviz scene or a concept artwork, you’ll probably now how hard it is to add vegetation and also keep it varied and realistic, specially for trees. There are tones of resources out there, but it’s also hard sometimes to find the kind of tree you’re looking for.
So in order to have more freedom while creating our scene we will be using a free addon for the tree creation. Then we will explore the different possibilities that brings this addon and take a look on the leaf material, taking special care on the translucent setup to achieve realistic behavior of the light.
After that, we will create some twigs and populate the tree.
Finally we will take a look on how to create different variations of the same tree and keep it ready to append to our projects!
In this class you’ll learn:
How to download and install the Free addon: Mtree
Create a basic tree shape and generate different branch levels
How to Save and Load different presets quickly
How to set a realistic translucent leaf material
Create different twig variations and populate the tree
Generate different variations of the same tree quickly
