TreeSketch 3.0 - Free Interactive Tree Modeller for the iPad

I have just released version 3.0 of my iPad tree modelling app, TreeSketch.

Here is a link to a demo video: http://vimeo.com/68195050

It is available on the iTunes app store here: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/tre...30117?ls=1&mt=8

A number of features and parameters have been added or changed since TreeSketch version 2.0. The most important are listed below.

Model export
• In addition to iTunesConnect, models and images can be exported via Dropbox. Export options have been significantly expanded and include the obj mesh format and high resolution composite ready rendered images. Textures can now be exported with the model.

Modeling
• The hybrid growth algorithm has been introduced to improve consistency between trees modeled interactively using brushing and trees grown autonomously. The original sketching and growing algorithm remains available as the “artistic” algorithm.

Rendering
• Rendering has been enhanced to include shadows and scattered light. Direction of light illuminating the scene can be interactively manipulated by dragging the sun in the sky.
• Trees can carry fruit, buds and thorns. Their distribution and appearance can be controlled via a dedicated tab.

Interface
• TreeSketch 2.0 “flowcurves” have been replaced with the sketch-based tropism option to improve control of growth direction using sketching.
• TreeSketch 2.0 post-editing of branches has been improved by replacing over-sketching with multi-touch branch bending.
• Key architectural parameters can be more conveniently manipulated using specialized widgets.
• Color attributes (hue, saturation and brightness), including those of textures, can be manipulated using specialized colored sliders
• Growth and/or rendering parameters from previously saved trees can be loaded as presets for new growth.
• Brushing gestures can be visualized to illustrate the construction of the models.

Thanks

You actually have a windows tablet?

It's not a jab at windows, but I didn't know anyone was really buying them to warrant any serious cross-platform development. If anything, I'd think Android would be a better choice.

I thought more of a desktop system. But yeah, i can see that there could be quite a few difficulties with the gesture controls there

Android would of course also be nice

I'm starting to see a whole lot of Windows tablets day to day. Most of them are waiting for when they replace their laptop normally and then get the Surface Pro instead.

This is pretty much incredible... why is this free?

Windows desktop edition with Leap motion support would be great
 
Old 06 June 2013   #11
Wow, this is great! Thanks so much for making it available

A superb piece of software. I have to echo what others have said, wondering why it is free. Plenty of people would pay good money for such a slick and professional program. Unfortunately I don't have an iPad. I wonder what new features could be added if the program were designed for any number of the pressure-sensitive Android tablets out there - perhaps controlling the density of foliage or the rate of bifurcation. I want to see more instant topiary animals.

Wow that looks brilliant Steven. I will be trying it later today.

You need to get this into windows with LOD support, 3ds/fbx export with maps, and perhaps some basic wind animation and people will be throwing their money at you... including me.

Also now thinking of this same technology applied to scattering/growing ivy around, planting/low-level veg etc.... lots of applications.
