San Francisco - Architects and
designers now have access to100 species of Xfrog plants and trees that
can be easily integrated into digital worlds and environments created
with Autodesk 3ds Max Design modeling, animation, and rendering
software. This render-quality, realistic content, developed by
botanical experts from around the world, is available for free download
from the Autodesk Seek Web service.
Xfrog libraries are created from original photos, reference sketches,
books, and real samples of each plant. Bark, leaves, and petals are
scanned to create high-quality, realistic models. Users can download
TIF texture files, as well as ZIP files that contain multiple versions
of the vegetation, representing different ages, seasons, colors, and
sizes in varying amounts of detail.
The detailed vegetation
can also be simplified using the enhanced ProOptimizer in 3ds Max
Design 2010 or the Polygon Reduction Tool in Autodesk Maya 2009
software. The Xfrog content is now available on Autodesk Seek for 3ds
Max Design 2010, Autodesk 3ds Max 2010, and Maya 2009 software.
