10 free cutout textures from vegetation and trees
What is the best way to add vegetation and tress in architectural visualization? You will find different techniques to add that type of element in architectural projects going from 3D models of trees to dedicated textures. If you want to get good results that won't add much computational load to the render, you should prefer the use of textures.
A particular type of texture called “Cutout” is incredibly useful for architectural visualization because it usually comes with a transparent background. After applying the texture to a plane, you can easily place it in the background if your scene.
Do you want to download a pack with ten free cutout textures from vegetation?
The guys from kaiserbold shared on their Gumroad account a free connection with ten of those textures, which are perfect for architecture. You can get the textures using the “fair price” model from Gumroad. By using zero in as the price, you can get them for free.
All files are in PNG with a transparent background. Add them to a plane in Blender and start rendering them with either Eevee or Cycles.
Using Blender for architecture
Do you want to use Blender for architecture or render your projects using Cycles or Eevee? We have three books available that could help you!
They cover the use of Blender for producing architectural content and also all information you need to render projects in real-time:
- Blender 2.9 for architecture: Modeling and rendering with Eevee and Cycles
- Blender 2.8 parametric modeling: Drivers, Custom Properties, and Shape Keys for 3D modeling
- Blender 3.0: The beginner's guide
- Blender Eevee: The guide to real-time rendering with Blender 2.8
You can get them in both digital and paperback formats. By ordering those books, you will not only improve your skills with Blender for architecture but also support Blender 3D Architect.
