If all you need to do is trees, you could also check out DP Instant tree. I’ve had some very satisfactory results from it. It’s quite a bit cheaper than XFrog (but doesn’t let you do plants or other abstracts)

I’ve been looking at Onyx. They look pretty good. I believe you can alter the size (meg-wise) they have a .c4d export and they have the option to use bilboards.

The full suite is $495, but if you want to create a specific type of tree, each module is $195.

If you live in the Uk you might be able to pickup the 3D World mag which has a free Full copy of XFrog 3.02 on the disk.

Now that you’ve used X-Frog, notice the material structure in the manager. What I found was a simple poly mapped with a leaf shaped alpha chanel mask and a “leafy” image map.

I’ve experimented using a soft hypernurb trunk, generate several instances for secondary branches, lay down a high count rectangular poly-plane splitting a branch along it’s axis, and “crumble”.

Use a projection map with your new alpha-chanel texture on your “crumbled” poly-plane and don’t forget to water!

Cool, can you tell me what issue?

Very nice, Galo! Was it a lot of work? Is it render intensive?

Xfrog freebie is in the current issue of 3D World. Its version 3.02.
Not as nice to use as the proper c4d version. Also Win only.

Hey, it was verry simpel, just modeled the bark, and then i made a plane with a alpha channel, that are the leaves, give em a colour, transparency, finito… :smiley: sort of image plane renders in les then a second

Did R8.1 come with XFrog 3.02 ? I don’t remember if it did or was that a demo ? I got the XL Bundle but i already had the 3.02 version from DIGIT mag installed.
