CGCookie – Fundamentals of Tree Creation
In this short course we’ll go over using the Unity Tree Creator to create a tree. The Tree Creator is a somewhat hidden feature of Unity that is quite useful for creating any type of game optimized vegetation. There are quite a few settings and this course is designed to break it down to understand all the sliders, curves and drop down menus.
Things covered in this course include:
- Creating branches and leaves
- Utilizing curves to customize trees
- Using wind zones and adjusting wind settings
- Example of alternate vegetation that can be created
We’ll end the course by providing an example prefab of a bamboo set to give you an idea of the different types of vegetation that can be created with the “tree creator”.
