Xfrog allowed us to work in our favorite 3D package Maya as a plug in, and the set of tools that come with were perfect for animating a growing tree, sprouting branches, realistic bark, and a huge variety of lush leaves. Since using on that commercial I always go to Xfrog when I need any 3D plants or trees.
What’s New in Xfrog 5 for Maya
Xfrog instances individual components using multiplication objects such as Branch, Phyllotaxis, Hydra, and Variation. Now in Xfrog 5, the resulting child instances are individually editable.
When using Phyllotaxis to create a flower, the petals are child instances resulting in a very good petal multiplication arrangements using Natural Rules (based around a sphere using golden mean). Xfrog 5 for Maya now offers the ability to edit each individual petal. The same goes for Branches: as always, Xfrog 5 makes extremely natural looking tree branching, but now each branch spline can be edited individually, located in x,y,z coordinates. or affect any single part of any single branch. Individually editable instances are highly desirable for advanced modeling and is the main new feature set in Xfrog 5.
