Swaying trees

What steps do I engage to create swaying trees and realistic vegetation?

Many thanks

Hi @Deckard1138 and welcome,

For swaying by the wind trees you are usually looking at writing a vertex shader. The vertex shader can manipulate and animate the position of the tree vertices to follow a wind pattern.

I don’t have a PlayCanvas example in mind but if you look online for similar shaders on other graphics engines you can understand the logic.

From there you can check these examples to get started with shaders in PlayCanvas:
