Programming of 3D Vegetation : Procedural, L-System etc...

If you are not very familiar with 3D vegetation design, maybe you might find interesting the articles on my website about various approaches used for 3D plants modelling (or maybe I should rather say vegetation programming) :

http://greengene.republika.pl/3D_BOTANY_F.htm

You can learn there the differences between the current procedural approach used by TPF (and also Xfrog & Speed Tree) and the old programmed L-System approach and others/

(Sorry, "customizabe" section is not ready yet)

Growth simulation approach used by software developed by prof. Prusinkiewicz from University of Calgary is especially interesting.
I would love if some future versions of TPF could implement it to some extent.

Robert :-)

very nicely laid out set of explanations on your pages. Good for Vue'ers. Your information about Speedtree is incorrect, possibly some long time has passed since you looked at that product. But this is minor - otherwise a nice job.

Hi Forester,

Could you precise which parts about ST are incorrect ?
It was last year that I checked their demo version, but maybe I missed something. Let me know in details what is incorrect, and I am going to change it.

Thanks,

Robert

Probably best to keep the focus on TPF here.

Yep, but if someone says that "something" is incorrect, it is aways useful to know what exactly is wrong, to correct it. Otherwise what's the point to say this in the first place ?

It doesn't make sense to pretend that Speed Tree does not exist.
It could be interesting discussion to compare strong and weak points of both applications.

TPF could profit, by integrating some Speed Tree functionality it still lacks.

The most appropriate place for a discussion of this sort would be on your own web site - not here. After all, it is on your own web site where you posted your impressions and critique of Speedtree.

I think it's good to share experiences and plusses and minuses of programs with suggestions about what would enhance Plant Factory! :D
