- Precise Control – users can create plants of any desired shape, appearance, and behavior using simple building blocks
- Massive Populations – building on e-on’s leadership in EcoSystems™ to create landscapes containing millions of plants
PlantFactory in Your 3D Application
Plants created using the PlantFactory technology can be exported to any 3D Application using multiple export formats such as FBX, 3DS, OBJ, C4D, LWO, etc. Plants are exported fully rigged, fully textured, with UV maps and displacement, etc. Breeze or wind animated plants can be exported using a fully rigged mesh, or as a cloud of animated vertices (MDD style). That way, you can fine tune the plant animation to your needs, directly inside your preferred application.
