​New "Grassland" Geometry Nodes Chapter​


Martin Klekner is working hard to bring you the next addition to the Master 3D Environments in Blender course. In chapter 17, you will discover how to use Geometry Nodes to create a "Grassland" environment.

The first videos of the chapters are now available. There you will learn several Geometry Nodes based workflows that will teach you how to displace a terrain, scatter assets, randomize values of assets and combine various GeoNode networks together.

More content is coming soon to this chapter, so you will learn how to create the entire scene above.
