We’ve got ’em all!
PlantFactory is packed with amazing features that deliver unsurpassed realism and performance. An essential tool for any VFX pipeline, PlantFactory will have you creating stunning digital art in a flash!

Production Proof*
Because we understand that our tools will find their place with bigger arsenal in your pipeline, we made sure that what you do in PlantFactory does not merely stay in PlantFactory!

Plants created with PlantFactory can be exported to any 3D application using export formats such as Alembic, FBX, 3DS, OBJ, C4D, LWO, etc.

Plants are exported fully rigged, fully textured, with UV maps and displacement, and with all their LODs. Breeze or wind animated plants can be exported as a fully rigged mesh or as a cloud of animated vertices (MDD style).

You can fine-tune the animation of rigged mesh plants directly inside your target 3D application.

PlantFactory also offers a variety of export presets, custom tailored for specific host applications. Such presets include export for 3ds Max, Maya, Cinema4D, LightWave, Modo, ZBrush, Unity, Unreal, Blender, and more…

PlantFactory + VUE
When used in conjunction with VUE, PlantFactory will fully integrate and expand the software, so that you can access the plant editing power of PlantFactory directly from VUE and use the VUE tools to affect the PlantFactory vegetation.

Furthermore, when used inside of VUE, PlantFactory creates unique vegetation – i.e. no two plants of the same species will ever look exactly alike. PlantFactory plants also sway in the breeze, or twist and bend in strong winds.

PlantFactory plants will automatically adapt their resolution with distance, through a dynamic LOD system, making them perfect for Hero plants, foreground, mid-ground and background placements in your compositions.

PlantFactory vegetation can be edited directly within the VUE Plant Editor. Specific parameters from the plant graph can be extracted to the Plant Editor to create simplified, high-level controls and facilitate your plant editing process.

Last but not least, like any VUE component, PlantFactory plants will work seamlessly with the EcoSystem™ technology to create landscapes containing millions of unique plants!

One of the key features of PlantFactory is its ability to dynamically set global plant characteristics such as plant age, health, and seasonality.

These characteristics can drive any node or set of nodes in the TPF graph to add more complete plant definition and realism.

Gamma handling
• Improved overall gamma management

Integration and Export (1)
• Added “Single Texture Per Material” baked export mode
• Improved procedural texture baking
• Enhanced the “top transition” blending function of segments by extrapolating the parent shape
• Improved exported material names
• Added running color algorithm when exporting texture maps, fixing seams for low mips

Path Tracer
• Added interactive path traced preview (ideal to monitor PBR shader authoring, for instance)

• Added Substance cache mechanism
• Hide channel Substance parameters when detected
• Handle 4-dimension Substance parameters
• Display Substance parameter groups

• Enhanced preview contrast by reducing GI contribution by half
• Added filter 2D new points using the last clicked point and always find a place to add them (even when far away of the curve)
• Added ability to zoom where the mouse is in graph view; handle slowdown key, allows smaller zoom.
• Reworked UDIM export to allow sort by material
• Improved filter editor interface
• Added invert front and back option in flower node
• Fixed polygons count when using Auto LOD (show the count for the actual LOD)
• Added the ability to close the flower top geometry
(1) Export and Integration plugins are only available in Professional and Enterprise solutions

This spring release also offers a new batch of 15 HD and LD – botanically accurate – vegetation species, including:
• Succulents: Carnegiea Gigantea, Cordyline Australis, Echinocactus Grusonii, Yucca Brevifolia, Yucca Elephantipes, Yucca Rostrata
• Palms: Rhapis Exelsa, Trachycarpus Fortunei
• Climbers and Ground Covers: Hedera Helix wall climber, Hedera Helix grownd cover
• Bushes: Hedera Helix ‘Erecta’, Plectranthus Scutellarioides ‘Vulcan’
