Thanks for feedback! I will make update with first branches moved up :)


Editable GrowFX version of this collection will be available too but later.


Cinema4D version is not ready yet but it should be released soon.

Ironically some of the freebies out there, like those Birches are pretty good (they were good enough for Bertrand as well :- )..] But out of the full packages...neither is convincing at all. With heavy alterations, mostly to leaves, the latest evermotion are good as they atleast keep realistic structure to branches and the whole L-System, something really important as the silhuette is noticeable even in distance, not only for hero trees.

Hardly impressed by this, looks like those from 4 years ago in quality. I already gave up on the notion that someone is even capable of creating realistic trees for public. Odd shapes, overly simplified structure, almost caricaturic proportions at times, very low-level quality of branching, random leaves formations. Much CGI

I hate to be a party pooper, but the human scale seems off in most of these trees, or rather the first branches are way too low. That aside, looks like a great collection.

@PaulStein  Don't hate it - any feedback is good feedback... I'm sure kim will take this into consideration. I know he is re-working all past volumes to make them better and nicer so he might make a round of improvements on this one too. Being based on GrowFX should allow for easy update I'm sure.
