•Full PBR workflow and rendering.
Supports non-destructive material editing, allowing artists to adjust textures on the fly.
•A completely new library.
It consists of 150 models, ranging from seedlings to towering forest trees, includes thousands of 3D surface-scanned PBR textures. Each individual model file (.spm) contains multiple polygonal resolutions and adjustable seasonal variations.
•Vastly improved export pipeline.
Exports of both meshes and wind animations now run much faster and use far less memory. Other improvements include UDIM support, better mesh unwrapping, hierarchical exports, and better bone weighting for skinned meshes.
•New leaf batching system.
Leaf rendering in the SpeedTree Modeler is up to 1,000 times faster than version 7. This innovation greatly speeds the modeling process and supports the creation of more complex models.
•Major leaps in wind realism.
Cinema 8 captures the complex dynamics of wind among leaves and branches more naturally than ever. The overhauled system features a realistic rolling wind effect, is much easier to tune, and includes a new wind wizard.
•Numerous other improvements.
There are more than two dozen other substantial improvements including a new art director tool, an overhauled mesh cutout system.
SpeedTree Cinema 8 is available for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux. The price of a node-locked licence costs $1,650 and a floating licence costs $2,500. The SpeedTree Library is available on a subscription-only basis, starting at $1,500/year.
