I'd like to share a quick little shader I made.

It's a grass shader where wind is controlled by a panned 'noise texture' projected from above (world X and Z).
The strength of the 'wind' is also affected by the vertex colors of the mesh if that is available.

I reworked the vertex displacement to only allow one direction (the direction of the wind).
Here is the new version: https://1drv.ms/u/s!AmdWbCdEmFPhsiDAOtU3lUM9TwYY

Both versions are nice, but the newest one works best with lone shrubbery compared to the previous version.
