German digital botany software company Laubwerk has updated the Plants Kits to version 1.0.25. Laubwerk Plants Kits allow 3D artists and architects to insert photorealistic tree models into their 3D scenes quickly and easily, without the usual slow downs due to overly complicated parameters or excess memory usage.
About Laubwerk Plants Kit 4. Laubwerk Plants Kit 4 includes the iconic Mediterranean cypress (Cupressus sempervirens), trees with magnificent floral display such as the Japanese camellia (Camellia japonica) and the world’s most popular palm, the Canary Island date palm (Phoenix canariensis) and other trees honored by the Royal Horticultural Society’s Award of Garden Merit.
Plants Kit 4 features some of the most popular and spectacular examples of trees growing along roads, in parks, gardens, and orchards in the subtropics, or in heated greenhouses. It includes silver wattle (Acacia dealbata), Persian silk tree (Albizia julibrissin), Japanese camellia (Camellia japonica), orange (Citrus x sinensis), Mediterranean cypress (Cupressus sempervirens), cockspur coral tree (Erythrina crista-galli), New Zealand pohutukawa (Metrosideros excelsa), Canary Island date palm (Phoenix canariensis), stone pine (Pinus pinea), and Pomegranate (Punica granatum).
Like the temperate deciduous and tropical broadleaf tree models found in Laubwerk Plants Kits 1, 2, and 3, each subtropical species is carefully crafted by botanical specialists and 3D modeling experts using a hybrid of handcrafted and procedural modeling methods. The Laubwerk system allows 3D artists and architects to insert photorealistic tree models into their 3D scenes quickly and easily, without the usual slow downs due to overly complicated parameters or excess memory usage.
Laubwerk accomplishes this goal by giving users just the right amount of variation in their 3D tree models, without overwhelming the user or their computer. Each tree model comes in 3 shapes, with 4 ages, and 4 seasons per shape. Adjustable level of detail settings means that each tree looks great without slow navigation or long rendering times.
