SpeedTree Cinema 8.1.3 The best vegetation and tree modeling special effects software tool available for film and video production
THE STANDARD FOR VEGETATION MODELING AND MIDDLEWARE
VISUAL EFFECTS & ANIMATION
Emmy and Academy Award-winning modeling and animation suite used to create trees and plants for films and television.
THE INDUSTRY STANDARD FOR 3D VEGETATION MODELING
SpeedTree Cinema is the award-winning 3D-modeling suite that allows you to
model, texture, and animate, both stylized and photoreal vegetation for VFX, arch/viz, or matte paintings.
PROCEDURAL + HAND MODELING
Model and shape any type of vegetation using a combination of procedural and fine-tuned art controls.
Preview and tune new advanced wind effects and create fine-tuned animated growth sequences.
Apply textures to your entire model with a few clicks, with export scripts for most popular DCCs and renderers.
SpeedTree Cinema delivers a unique procedural plus hand modeling approach that lets you create exactly the tree or plant you want faster than ever before. Start with our large species library (all of which is yours with a Cinema license) or create your own using custom leaf or branch models and textures. Export as a mesh with baked-in wind animation via point cache, and then bring it into your rendering package of choice. SpeedTree Cinema is available in 32- and 64-bit versions available for Windows, and for the first time, Mac and Linux. It easily integrates with digital content creation/special effects software, including Maya®, Houdini, Cinema 4D, 3ds Max®, Rhino, and more. This includes crack, patch, serial.
FULL PBR MATERIAL WORKFLOW
PBR rendering in the Modeler window and a full non-destructive material workflow allows for accurate previews of your models without needing to switch applications.

NEW SPEEDTREE LIBRARY
To build the SpeedTree Cinema 8 library we created a custom-built scanning rig and software suite that allows us to create 8k leaf and bark textures with all the requisite PBR maps. By partnering with an arboretum in North Carolina, we have direct access to thousands of species of trees from around the world.
The SpeedTree VFX LIbrary is a constantly expanding set of diverse models that are essential to any VFX workflow. All bark sets include a height map to allow the creation of accurate displacement maps in the trunk geometry.
