Terragen 2 and Xfrog Plants - The Ultimate 3D Landscape Solution
Planetside Software and Xfrog, Inc. have united in support of a common goal: to create the most realistic virtual ecosystem software available. For the first time the unrivaled realism of Terragen landscape rendering has been matched with Xfrog, the industry's leading 3D plant model content and software. Buy both together and save thousands over stand-alone prices!
Terragen™ 2 is a powerful solution for rendering and animating realistic natural environments. Create entire worlds from your imagination, or import real world terrain datasets and use Terragen 2 to create the most realistic visualisations possible. You control the weather, landscape, rivers, lakes and oceans, suns, moons and stars. With Terragen 2 you have complete control over the shader networks used for terrains, textures, micropolyon displacements, clouds and object distributions. You can reorganise the planetary shading pipeline to suit your goals. With the inclusion of Xfrog Plants libraries, you can populate your scenes with virtually unlimited numbers of highly detailed, realistic 3D plants. Place grass and trees wherever you want, as well as other objects in OBJ format that you can model in third party software.
Xfrog Plant Libraries and Organic Modeling Software
Xfrog Modeling Software is a stand-alone 3D graphics program, used for organic modeling and animation. The Philosophy behind Xfrog is to offer various mathematical procedural components, to provide a way to simulate various types of mathematical structures found in Nature. All the components can be animated by varying their parameters, such as number of branches, crookedness, randomness, strength of attraction, gravity, phototropism. With such techniques, a quite convincing flower can be built and animated very easily , or a tree can be modeled and grown. Or an Architectural model can be constructed using components which describe a multiplied sequence of elements around a corkscrew path.

The new version really allowed us the freedom to realize the creative ideas we had for environments. I don't think I could give up my Terragen addiction at this point!
