It is available immediately for 3ds Max and CINEMA 4D. The first three Plants Kits containing temperate deciduous trees and tropical broadleaf trees have already wowed the CG community. Now, Laubwerk is proud to present Plants Kit 4, an impressive collection of 10 Mediterranean and other subtropical tree species found across Europe, Africa, the Americas, Asia, and Australia.
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.
REALISTIC PLANTS-The included free Laubwerk Player Plugin for Autodesk® 3ds Max®, 3ds Max Design® and MAXON® CINEMA 4D®, is used to load, control and modify the Laubwerk Plants based on your needs.
-The Player allows you to choose between variations, ages and seasons and allows fine grained control about Level of Detail.
-Each species comes render-ready, with preset materials and textures for the built-in renderer (3ds Max & CINEMA 4D), V-Ray® (3ds Max & CINEMA 4D) and mental ray® (3ds Max).
-Leaves consist of more than just a single polygon, so they bend and catch highlights.
-Textures are based on high quality photos from real trees.
-Laubwerk Plants and Laubwerk Player are based on our innovative Laubwerk Technology, which makes storage and manipulation of complex plant objects quick and simple. For a free product trial get the Laubwerk Plants Kit Freebie.
Jan Walter Schliep, senior 3D artist at Laubwerk, says: “Exploring shapes, patterns and colors of plants is something that always has fascinated me - both in real life and 3D computer graphics. And with every new Laubwerk Plant, I try to get closer to what we can see in nature”.
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.
All four Laubwerk Plants Kits are each available now for 149 Euro (w/o VAT) at laubwerk.com/store and selected resellers.
