Vegetation Studio Pro
Get the Addon
There are several vegetation packages on the Unity asset store, but nothing that matches the functionality of Vegetation Studio and Vegetation Studio Pro. We will be using the Pro version in this lesson as it has more features that allow for better integrations with Microsplat.
Vegetation Studio Pro is a vegetation placement and rendering system designed to replace the standard tree and detail system in the Unity terrain component. It can also spawn and render vegetation on standard unity meshes.
Download the Addon
You can download the package and all package addons from the package manager inside of Unity. Make sure to update to the latest version. All items that support this package will appear allowing import. Depending on what you would like to support in your package options, you import those additional items.
Vegetation Studio Pro has some additional requirements that must be met for this to properly work.
You will need to install a couple of additional packages for this to work properly. These allow Vegetation Studio Pro to run faster and provide better vegetation results.
Unity will compile but you will require to have these two selected for this to work inside of your client builds. Your Version number for the MSVC might be different, always use the latest that is available to you. If you are building for Windows 10 and 11, make sure you have both SDK’s installed.
