ArtStation – Creating Vegetation for Games | Tutorial by Daniel Peres

In this tutorial I will take you in-depth into the whole process of creating vegetation for games, where we will learn how to tackle a tree asset from start to finish.

We will learn the fundamentals and mindset behind creating vegetation assets for games and how to leverage existing industry tools to speed up your workflows, making them faster, optimized and highly “iteratable”.

Not only will we learn the artistic values and fundamentals behind it, but also how to tackle it on a technical level by taking the most out of the tools, create LODs and billboards and setup the final asset in the engine.

Content

Roughly 4 hours of a narrated in-depth tutorial where we dive into the creation process behind a game-ready tree asset step-by-step.

In this tutorial we will start the journey by talking a little bit about the process of creating vegetation as a whole, how you can approach it and what are the pros and cons of integrating procedural tools like SpeedTree into the pipeline.

Then we will learn how to gather and analyze references in preparation for the challenge ahead, making sure everything is ready for us to achieve the best results possible.

After that we will be working towards our tree asset by starting with the blockout stage, understanding its importance and what to look for at that stage. Then we will move into the creation of our final highpoly meshes and textures, leveraging SpeedTree and Substance Designer.

By the end we will create our final lowpoly mesh, create the LODs, setup the wind and billboards and then set it all up inside UE4 so that everything is ready to be used across all of your projects.
