E-on releases PlantCatalog procedural foliage library
E-on has announced the release of PlantCatalog, a new procedural library and plants and trees. At the time of release, the software features 60 species, each of which can be customised using parameters like age, health, season, size, and many more. There are also presets for each plant. More plants are due to be added every quarter
Animation is supported, as are LOD levels, and the ability to export the plants in many formats for use in nearly any application. Importer plugins which maintain the parametric controls are available for Max and Maya.
PlantCatalog costs $249.95 per year which includes the exporter standalone application and the plugins. Vue or Plantfactory users can get a license for $99 that works directly in these applications.
