View Full Version : Esier way to Model a tree in modeler..?

06-30-2003, 07:04 PM
Do you have any good idea to model a tree in modeler, i ever tried to use "Particle Linker" in layout and i also tried to manual model piece by piece with clip map, but the problem is there was too much polygon, it comes out an alert that cannot support too much object in the Layout....(because of the huge number of polygon)
and some more...the result is not very realistic...

++so does anyone here got any good idea or tutorial site can model a realistic tree?? Kindly introduce to me, thanksss a lot ! ! !

This ought to do it for ya. :)


You should also look on Flay.com for the Gene plugin. It will help create the base trunk and branches.

Well, Flay's down right now so I can't get the actual link for you - check out Tree Cage - it's a free plug that does exactly what you're looking for. The only thing it doesn't handle is leafing the tree. For that, check out http://www.polas.net - he's got a tree generator and leafer commercially available that I've read good things about.

The Polas plugins are great for making trees.

Top notch plugin developer!

TreeGen from my ModPak (http://www.kolumbus.fi/erkki.halkka/modpak/) is one option - though it's not as fully featured as the other tree plugins out there.

It creates trees quite similar to the ones in the tree tutorial linked to earlier.

I second Steve's suggestion of Dave Jerrard's tutorial "trees its a breeze". This is what I used when I first needed to make tree. Its pretty easy to follow.
