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.

Vue is very cool, but rendering times are too long. Most of the times you need to optimise while exporting. it's not a hard work on the other hand...

I haven't used Vue in a professional job but here are some examples to give idea who are not familiar with the software ;) The first 2 is all made with vue, at the 3rd & 4th renders only plants are important from vue...
