PlantFactory 2014.6 PLE and Trial

The Personal Learning Edition and Trial Version of PlantFactory are now updated for the recently announced 2014.6 release!

PlantFactory Producer - Personal Learning Edition (PLE)

PlantFactory Producer allows you to author fully animated 3D plants in concert with your production workflow. Hand-draw plants, assemble pre-made components or build plants from scratch using the node graph.

The Personal Learning Edition of PlantFactory Producer is a fully functional version that lets you save your work and never expires. It is designed for Artists and Students that want to master the best plant solution on the market, without punching a hole in their wallet.

With the PLE, you can:

  • Create complete projects and save your work,
  • Export* your plants to other applications as standard geometry or use them in the VUE PLE,
  • Render in FullHD (for stills) and animations up to 720p,
  • Learn at your own pace (the PLE never expires)!

*Exported geometry leaves 1 polygon out of 5 out.

PlantFactory Studio, Designer and Artist Trial Versions

The PlantFactory Trial lets you test the same capabilities found in all different versions of PlantFactory (Studio, Designer, and Artist) so you can decide which one best fits your needs. The Trial contains all 3 versions.
