The moss in these scenes is created procedurally using Blenders Geometry nodes. For each moss type, moss textured planes are distributed onto vertex groups using a randomised scale and rotation to achieve a realistic effect. Scale and rotation factors are exposed to give a degree of artistic control.
Three type of Moss are available to distribute and one cup fungus. All three mosses are typical of the ground flora in British coniferous woodland.
Moss – type 1
A fern-like moss of the Thuidium type. Rich green with overlapping mossy fronds.
Moss – type 2
Far more branching in growth with a more chaotic habit and a distinctive yellow tinge to the leaves.
Moss – type 3
With a much greater frond density and very much more even upright growth, this lush moss is great for creating moss hummocks.
This bright red Neotiella cup fungus is great for injecting a accent of colour into a scene. Five different cup shapes are randomly selected and rotated to give variety.
As an example, this is the same simple scene rendered with different moss settings
