  • Vegetation modelling plays a key role in shots composition. Achieving a believable and nature-like result has proven to be a tedious and time consuming task for artists. To overcome this issue we present a Houdini tool for trees modelling. Through specifying different parameters’ values the tool will generate a variety of tree shapes. Tree structures are achieved using the space colonization algorithm by Runions et al (2007). Model parameters are directly mapped onto visual characteristics and… CONTINUE READING
