XfrogPlants April (and May) Sale

You can never have enough 3d trees & plants. Keeping your scenes greenies nice and fresh is important, so here’s a little heads up – April is almost up and you have 1-2 days left due to my previous heads up, demand was such Xfrog granted an extra full month to take advantage of the 50% discount on all Xfrog’s products. XfrogPlants are realistic, highly detailed, fully textured 3D trees, shrubs, and flowers, carefully modeled with the Xfrog procedural software. You have 600 species available in libraries or as individual species… just have your pick.

All XfrogPlants are modeled “by hand” using the procedural hierarchies of Xfrog 3.5 / 5.0 software. All models include the editable XFR, so you can pretty much edit anything you buy if you choose to. You can get XfrogPlants in various formats : 3dsmax, Maya, LightWave, Cinema4D, modo, Vue, Terragen, MicroStation, unity, OBJ and 3DS.


You probably remember that XFrog Inc. has made available 130 free 3d plant and tree sample models from the 30 XfrogPlants libraries! Three to nine 3d plant models are included in each of the 30 species they provide (with all major formats included). You’ll find them on the Samples tab on the Xfrog site.

An important tip, about the rendering of opacity mapped leaves (In VRay, but probably in most other render engines too), is to make sure you remove filtering in the alpha/opacity map. This is crucial to make alpha mapped leaves render faster. If you are using Forest Pack Pro, then you have a built in Material Optimizer that can take care of this for you for faster renders…

I use Xfrog plants in all my scenes, because their huge libraries can provide me all the variation and quality models that i need for my daily work…
