The Best 3D Plant Technology on Earth

PlantFactory Studio 2016Designed for CG professionals and small studios, PlantFactory Studio 2016 creates richly detailed custom plants. Hand-draw your plants, assemble pre-made components or build plants from scratch using the node graph.
Produce high-quality 3D plants with un­precedented ease-of-use and export them as fully animated meshes to any other 3D application - including Vue EcoSystems.

New Features

Growth Simulation
  • Easily generate geometry using a biologically inspired growth simulation
  • Handles parameters such as growth, duration, shadow sensitivity, apical development etc.
  • Once applied, this basically becomes a "Grow me a tree" button
Presets Variations
PlantFactory 2015 introduced the concept of Presets. PlantFactory Studio 2016 now introduces the concept of Preset Variations.
Preset Variations allow you to immediately include subtle differences to your plant (change the number of buds on a blooming flower, or its petal colors for instance). This new feature allows you to easily add variety to create realistic environments with one single plant species.
Level Of Detail (LOD)
PlantFactory Studio 2016 now offers the ability to configure the level of detail in a plant model. Once you have set the number of LODs you need, there are 3 ways to configure them:
  • Let PlantFactory automatically decimate the geometry for you
  • Set the behavior of each node in your plant graph depending on the LOD
  • Use the LOD selector node to set a different plant graph per LOD
Once set, you can export each LOD geometry independently to many standard file formats.
Finally, VUE, Carbon Scatter and Bentley LumenRT Connect Edition will automatically use the LODs set in your .tpf files, without requiring you to export the plant.
Additional Edition Parameters
Some new parameters were added in the Segment node to further help you customize your plant designs:
  • Minimum length
  • Branch distribution as absolute
  • Texture mapping applied from branch top
  • Interaction with ground
