The Unlimited Procedural Vegetation Suite

PlantFactory is the most powerful solution on the market for modeling 3D vegetation. Its procedural, yet artist-friendly toolbox empowers you with unprecedented control over every detail. Create anything, from tiny mushrooms to majestic trees.
 
Whether you need ultra-realistic, high polygon plants for VFX and archviz, stylized vegetation for commercials or lightweight objects for real-time engines: PlantFactory will cover all your needs while integrating seamlessly into your pipeline.
 

Why PlantFactory?

Geometry nodes

Procedural, Non-destructive Modeling

PlantFactory offers three different modeling methods that can be mixed and matched:
 
  • Draw plants with primitives or self-made brushes,
  • use components (building blocks)
  • or create everything from scratch with nodes.

Thanks to its open-ended design, PlantFactory can also generate non-organic objects with repeating structures easily.

Time Saving

UV-unwrapping and proper edge flow and topology are handled automatically by smart algorithms. Focus more on creating content and less on technical nuisances.
 
For topology, you can still opt to override PlantFactory's automatic algorithms and get full manual control over your mesh. Automatically derive LODs with less subdivisions from the hero mesh.

Infinite Variations

Generate new variations of a plant with the click of a button. Design your own "plant engine" with presets and custom interfaces. Add growth / maturity, health and season and build multiple plant stages into a single file.
 
Animate the finished model with highly realistic wind algorithms that adapt their strengths to changes in the model. No matter the plant shape, there will always be a wind effect that will suit your needs.
 
 

Seamless Pipeline Integration

 

With the Professional and Enterprise versions of PlantFactory, you can export your models not only to VUE, but to a wide variety of 3D formats, including FBX, Alembic and Pixar USD. Include animation data and bake procedural materials into bitmaps. Custom tailored export presets for many applications help with setting up the best options.
 
Free plugins for industry-leading DCC applications allow loading the original procedural file format natively into your target application. Change presets, edit parameters and generate new variations and then let the plugin setup pre-built shaders for each native render engine as well as for Arnold  and V-Ray.
