Export particles from Blender to POD




Is there a way to export particles with PVRGeoPOD from Blender?

I am trying to create realistic grass like so but only the ground with displacement modifier is exported, the grass is created using particles but is dropped on export :frowning: This is more desirable than using a plain image texture for grass, which would look fake.



If you only want a single mesh to be exported by the particle system then you can try following:

This will create a duplicate mesh of the particle system for that frame of particle animation.





Thanks for the answer!

Indeed, I need to convert the particles modifier to 3D objects/mesh first, but nothing will be exported if I stop there. I also need to extrude the objects after conversion, because they are just simple lines and have no volume or area (grass particles are emitted as hair lines).

The exported sample:
