Join Zaheer Mukhtar for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating stylized grass, part of 3ds Max: Stylized Environment for Animation.
- [Instructor] There are several ways we can create grass,…and one of the common ways is that usually artists…create a strand of grass from a geometry,…and then using the Scatter tool, they scatter it…over a surface to create grass.…Now, I'm going to use a different and easy method…for creation of stylized grass, which would help us…meet the art style as well.…I have created this plane, and I'm using the same scene…where I created the vegetation or the flowers previously,…because I want to keep all my grass and flowers in one scene.…
Later I can export that into my original structure scene.…Now, the grass I will create here, actually I will…save the preset once I have finalized the looks,…I will save it as a preset and then I can…load that preset in my original scene.…To start the process, first let me tell you…that I have set my renderer to V-Ray.…If I press F10 and bring my render setup menu,…scroll down and in my Assign Render tab,…if I click Choose Renderer, I have actually set it…to V-Ray, so if you have V-Ray in your list,…
First, Zaheer explores artistic ways to block out the basic forms of your structure, such as using exaggerated proportions and irregular, tilted shapes. Next, he shows how to add details to the forms. Then he demonstrates how to add the more stylized elements including textures, imported materials, color refinements, and lighting. He wraps up the course by wrapping up the workflow, making final render passes and preparing the scene for export. Along the way, he covers art creation, modeling, compositing, and more.
