Check out a purely shader-based interaction system for realistic looking foliage interaction with the player in UE4.
Check out a purely shader-based interaction system for realistic looking foliage interaction with the player in UE4. The Advanced Foliage Interaction System uses the Pivot Painter 2 tools and custom functions to fake physically accurate collisions with grass and plants using Vertex Animation. The system features 3 Foliage Archetypes (Short Grass, Tall Grass, and Advanced Hierarchical Plant), also bringing 6 example Foliage Types.
Check out the documentation to learn more about the system.
