Creating Grass in Blender

Grass is just about everywhere outside, so it's really handy to know how to render it well. This course covers everything you'll need to make your own: modeling, shading, particle instancing, animation, and more! We'll cover two different ways of creating grass - hair particles and mesh particles. Since they both have their advantages and disadvantages, we'll cover why you would want to use one over another, or the best ways to use them in combination.
