With Graswald, creating stunning 3D nature renders in Blender is easy. Add ready-made particle systems with literally three clicks. Control where your plants grow with weight painting. Customize your materials to simulate the seasons. And with everything you need in one place, you can spend more time on your artwork.
Enjoy nature at its best. With Graswald, you'll get 473 of the 663 different highly detailed models from the Graswald Asset Library. You'll get access to 20 different species of world class 3D plants and debris to use in your renders, so you can create realistic environments without worrying about your vegetation.
Faster then you can say noodle. Create a particle system and particle settings, select a species and you’re good to go. You can now scatter your plants across the surface of any object in Blender without having to learn how to set everything up yourself. Or, add a new system with new settings and load the individual models into your scene so you can place them manually.
Next level stuff ahead. Both Graswald and Graswald Pro allow you to simulate the seasons by customizing the look of the plant materials. Using different sliders, you can alter the age of your plants.You can even add dry grass blades, colorful moss variation or dead grass patches within seconds. Adding that extra bit of realism takes your renders to the next level!
High material quality. Transparency and maximal texture resolution (up to 4k) for close-ups.
Medium material quality. No transparency and 512px large textures. Optimal for people with no time or loads of expensive computers.
Low material quality. No transparency and a minimal texture size of 16px result in the fastest render times.
Choose between three different material qualities. You don’t need as much detail for a large grass field as for a close-up render. Simply swap your materials for higher optimization.
Geometry optimization. Add levels of subdivision for each particle systems to boost the realism with additional geometry or decimate the number of polygons for larger scenes. All with a simple slider.
Simply great. Graswald's simplified user interface offers you the core features in a clear way that's easy to understand. Even if you're a Blender beginner. And with new icons, context menus and panels redesigned for Blender 2.8, it will fit right in with your typcial workflow.
Get everything done. Faster. You can find everything you need to influence the look and feel of your vegetation in the Graswald menu. Add more grass. Make the flowers smaller. Change the seed for a randomized look. And with all these settings in one place, you can ignore all the technical difficulties of 3D computer graphics and focus more on your art.
Always beautiful. All Graswald materials are using the brand new Principled BSDF shader, allowing a flexible workflow in Cycles and Eevee with physically correct shading where you need it. This ensures that the assets will always look great in every lighting condition, so you can stop fiddling with settings and start being creative.
Scattering made easy. With Graswald comes a handy toolset for placing and distributing your models accross a surface. With easy to use sliders, you don't need to learn expensive scattering software. The density settings simulate the way plants grow by controlling the percentage of area that is covered by your plants. Graswald even adjusts the number of models scattered according to the set size to guarantee a consistent density.
Give your machine some love. We know you don't have a quantum computer at home. Luckily, you don't need one as we have built in some optimization: Change the draw type right in the Graswald tab. Set it to bounds when working on large-scale scenes to improve overall viewport performance or switch it to textured view when you need to see every detail. You can even change the mode for the whole scene or hide individual systems in the viewport. That way, you can stay focused on what matters and work faster.
Get natural. In an ecosystem, every living organism has its own role to play.That is why some plants might grow in certain areas while others don’t. You can simulate this exact phenomenon by painting distribution maps. That way, you can control where and where not you want your plants to grow artistically. You can even reuse and modify existing groups to work more efficiently. Want the weight painting to affect the size of your plants? You can do that, too.
Control the percentage of populated space relatively to its size with the density slider to get consistent density between emitter objects of different sizes. The number of models even adjusts when changing the size so that the density stays the same.
With Graswald Pro, you get the same density settings. But with the plants per square meter option, you can also change the size of assets without changing the density. For more control and optimization for larger scenes, you can also make full use of the integrated children options to clump plants together or add more randomization. And with advanced orientation settings, you can make plants follow the sun (or any other light source). Plus,you can change the random size or let your plants only grow on individual vertices or inside an object by changing the source options.
In Graswald, you can simulate the seasons by customizing the look of the plant materials. Using different sliders, you can alter the age of your plants, making it possible to have young fresh leaves for a lovely spring atmosphere or old, broken, yellow leaves to nail those winter scenes. Plus, you can customize the dryness of your grass, add color variation and even create dead grass patches with easy to use sliders.
The same season options but we added more masking options for even more control. Adjust the intensity and age effect of your individual leaves with two additional sliders. Alter the colors with simple but effective controls to fit your needs. Take more control over your translucency to better match reference images. Even adjust the specularity and roughness right in the materials tab for your inner perfectionist. And use the Pass Index option to get easy masks for compositing your final images.
Add believable wind effects with a few clicks for animation. Change the speed, strength, noise and much more right in the Graswald menu. Together with Blender's internal force fields, you can magically breathe life into your scenes. You can even reuse and modify existing turbulence simulations for greater speed and consistency. And when combined with the hair simulation options, you'll get realistic wind in minutes.
In Graswald, assets are installed as packages. Graswald comes with its own four packages. The Package Manager allows you to install or load in other packages as well. That way, you can for example easily integrate new Graswald packages into Blender without having to reinstall everything from scratch.
Pro users use more than one asset library. That's why we included the Package Creator with Graswald Pro. This allows you to easily set up your own packages to use your assets within Graswald. And with the Package Manager included, you can load and install any packages you want.
Graswald's easy to use and simple to understand user interface lets you do the work you need to do - even if you're just getting started with Blender. That means you can focus on your artwork without having to worry about learning new software.
Graswald Pro's user interface is designed to keep all the different settings that Pro user need well-structured and organized. With multiple panels and bonus operators to expand, you can work in a clean environment without lacking the settings you need to do your work. And thanks to an interface tailored for Blender 2.8, it will look consistent in every situation.
