e-on software has released PlantFactory 2016 R2, the latest update to its line of software for creating animatable 3D plants, adding new features for generating low-poly vegetation for real-time work.
The update builds on the original PlantFactory 2016, released late last year.
New meshing and billboard options for generating low-poly plants for real-time work
One key change in PlantFactory is the new Stylized Meshing mode (shown above), which converts the bounding envelope of a plant model to low-poly geometry of the type you might see in a more stylised game.
Users can configure envelope resolution, smoothing and convexity quality to achieve a range of effects.
The update also introduces 3-Axis Billboard Leaves Rotation: a new features for randomising the orientation of leaves when generating them as 2D billboards rather than actual 3D geometry.
The feature reduces obvious visual repetitions when creating assets for real-time work.
