Hi, a few years ago I came across Xfrog. It looks it's not as much as I expected, but they keep on going. They have a great plant database and a powerful software for creating real trees and plants (standalone and as a plug-in for Maya and others).

Interesting videos about Vue xStream...

These renders took about 25 minutes, 150 dpi, 2000 pixels in the bigger side, I used the "Final" preset.
Later on I discovered some other option under the atmosphere editor menu, activating global radiosity gives a new fell to the renders. I´m using Vue 7, I think there´s not radiosity on earlier versions.

Hi Rfox,

I know that Vue Xstream is coming with a plug-in that helps integration with Max (it also gives chance to use Vue's render engine in Max). But I haven't had a chance to try it yet.

So, no I haven't used any plug-in. I've created the plants in Vue and exported them via standard Vue export tools with maps & UVW Coordinates. These tools also gives controls about optimising the mesh.

Then I've imported them into my Max scene. Did a little adjustments on geometry and maps (via Photoshop) and used them...

I also want to say that I totally agree your opinion about using Vue in a professional Landscape Architecture or Urban Design work. I don't mean it mustn't be used, the results even maybe cool, but I've just couldn't find an acceptable way yet. On the other hand learning it & playing around with it isn't a bad thing to do for landscape architects who are interested in CG. Hopefully this situation changes in the future :)

I like the plant library in vue and the ability to populate large areas, but it would be hard to get into a firm, so expensive and importing other geometries isn't the best. I just like messing with it.

Are the 3d and 4th using the vue/3d max plug in? I haven't really gone into it that far yet but it seems good.
