Cornucopia3D Opens the Plant Factory Nursery

Following the release of Plant Factory, our breakthrough plant creation technology, many artists have joined the Cornucopia3D Brokering program to share and sell their Plant Factory content.

Cornucopia3D is happy to introduce the Plant Factory Nursery! The Nursery provides direct access to all Plant Factory content, free or paid for; it is accessible from:

The Plant Factory Nursery currently includes over 100 plant species. Each plant specie will create numerous variations automatically, and plants are fully animated (wind and breeze) and include automatic age and health settings for the most part. The list of content is growing rapidly, so keep an eye on it! If you have specific requests, be sure to voice them on the Cornucopia3D store forums.

We're happy to see VUE's extensibility used in such creative ways.

ESRI and E-on 3D Vegetation Technology Partnership

We are pleased to announce that we have reached a technology agreement with Esri to add 3D vegetation inside Esri products. Under the terms of the agreement, Esri incorporated a custom-developed Plant Factory library of plants and trees in its 3D products.

The Esri 3D Vegetation Library delivers high-performance, realistic plant models for use in Esri CityEngine, ArcGIS for Desktop, and 3D web scenes on ArcGIS Online. The Esri 3D Vegetation Library is also compatible with LumenRT Immersive Visualization solution, allowing seamless export of CityEngine scenes and plants directly into LumenRT.

VUE in BBC Winter Olympics' Nature

Platige Image was recently commissioned by BBC Sports to produce several jaw-dropping TV spots to build audience's awareness and excitement ahead of the BBC's coverage of the 2014 Winter Olympics.

Pitch: Human vs nature. A primeval desire to prove oneself, challenge the nature, to win and go down in history for future generations. The idea behind the visual look of the spot was to show the struggle every Sportsman must face during the biggest and most important sport event, The Olympic Games.
