Easy Ivy plugin

This plugin follows the C4Dzone philosophy for developing Cinema 4D add-on: Fast and Easy! In the web there are a lot of plugins that create creepers but you surprise yourselves to see how Easy Ivy is easy and fast to use.

Easy Ivy can be used with all rendering engine as Vray.

The procedure for making creepers is very simple, it starts with laying roots on a poly object with the first internal tool Root Painter and after covering them with the Leaves Tool.

Easy Ivy will also generate automatically UVW aligned map of the final model.

The plugin bundles includes a set of leaves and material ready to use but you can expand it with your models.

Cinema4D and system requirement:
-Cinema4D release 13
-OSX Snow Leopard and Lion
-Windows 7 32/64 bit

EasyIvy is available on C4Dzone shopping at 19,00 + VAT

Thanks a lot. We thought about it but we like to make two different tools. The real time brush is usefull not only for make root but you can make after leaves creation other unlinked branch of the plant

This looks like a really nice tool. Are the leaves renderinstances?
I have Ivy Grower, but your lool looks to give you a bit more control because you can paint the branches.

Nice, as with the other Ivy Grower, it will have more uses than just creating Ivy.
But what if you made it so? What if in the options was the possibility of creating a wire jumbler and some other forms of foliage, maybe even spider webs. I think it's a shame for both tools to have powerful growth algorithms, but they limit themselves to one object.
