Onyx Computing, Inc. has updated the OnyxTREE Professional Suite, bringing it to version 6. OnyxTREE is a 3D procedural modeler designed for rendering and simulating the growth of various types of trees from sapling to adult. The latest version features simulated wind effects. According to Onyx Computing:
Onyx Computing, Inc., a software developer of vegetation creators and procedural modelers, today announced the new release of its worldwide known and well respected OnyxTREE Professional Suite.
New OnyxTREE Professional Suite 6 is a suite of four dedicated vegetation creators for procedural modeling of broadleaf trees and bushes (OnyxTREE BROADLEAF), conifer trees and bushes (OnyxTREE CONIFER), palms and related species (OnyxTREE PALM), and bamboos and related species (OnyxTREE BAMBOO).
All four modelers export 3D objects in six(6) most widely used file formats: 3DS, C4D, DXF, FACT, LWO, and OBJ. They also export high resolution images of plants as BMP(PICT) and TARGA files.
New, version 6, OnyxTREE BROADLEAF, OnyxTREE CONIFER, and OnyxTREE PALM now support the wind feature which allows a plant in the wind to be viewed and exported as a high resolution image or 3D object. The wind speed and direction as well as wind gusts can be adjusted. OnyxTREE BAMBOO supports bamboo growth which allows a bamboo to be viewed and exported in different stages of growth. The growth sequences can also be exported as sequences of 3D object files.
