This premier dedicated, knowledge-based, parametric modeler builds plants for you. The process of a tree creation and its
3D model generation is extremely fast and robust. It is capable to create infinite variety of highly photorealistic and biologically faithful trees that
will grossly enhance the quality of your renderings.
3D model export
OnyxTREE BROADLEAF exports 3D trees in six most popular 3D file formats. Those are: 3DS with UVs and sub-materials; C4D
with colors, UVs, and sub-objects; DXF with colors and layers, FACT with color-per-vertex coordinates, UVs, and sub-objects, LWO with color-per-vertex
coordinates, UVs, and surfaces; OBJ with colors, UVs, and sub-objects. In addition, you can save lassoed part of the tree. Also, prior to export you can
adjust the polygon count !
You can easily texture map natural scanned leaves onto the tree in your renderer. Export 3D model with plates. The plate
or leaf prototype holds UV mapping coordinates. Use the leaves from included Leaf Library of texture maps.
This is a new feature of version 6. If you wish to blow wind on the tree, set the wind parameters to the desired values
and the smart algorithms will calculate and model all the deformations on the basis of physical properties of the wind and the tree, and the interaction
forces between them, without any extra effort on users part. Shown below is Wind Time Line bar and below that images of young Salix babylonica affected
by light breeze, moderate breeze, and moderate gale, respectively.
Light breeze Strong breeze Moderate gale
Render with light This is truly one of a kind feature. Load any tree, enable the sun light, choose, for example, the late
afternoon sun preset, and press the render button. The tree lit by the late afternoon sun appears on the canvas in seconds. You can either choose one of
light presets or custom adjust light parameters to a variety of other light conditions. And, no matter how many polygons it has, the chosen tree will
ALWAYS be rendered thanks to OnyxTREE BROADLEAF's superbly conceived Z3R rendering engine which does quality job with astonishing speed of 40,000
polygons/second with virtually no RAM requirement. .
A tree can cast its shadow on a horizontal surface. Just press the shadow button and a chosen tree casts its shadow onto
the ground according to the preset light and shadow conditions. You can save that image as a TGA file with an alpha channel. An ideal feature for post
processing and photo compositing.
Hi-res image export
You can save the rendered image of a tree as a BMP file (Win version), PICT (Mac version) and TGA file. The image size
and resolution are adjustable and can be up to 30,000 pixels in either direction. You can set the background color by choosing among the predefined
background colors or by custom picking the color. When saving as TGA file, you have options to do it with alpha channel and antialiasing.
Any viewpoint 2D panel export
When exporting a tree image as a Targa (TGA) file, you can complement it with a single polygon "panel" or "billboard"
which will assure a perfect texture-mapping of the image to the polygon. This is an extremely useful feature for those customers who want to use one
polygon "panel" or "billboard" trees instead of full 3D models in their scenes. It is a great polygon saver.

Leaf texture maps included OnyxTREE BROADLEAF 6 comes with a collection of leaf image maps - front and back, bump and
alpha mask maps. Here are some samples:
OnyxTREE BROADLEAF Library included OnyxTREE BROADLEAF 6 comes with a rich collection of already created broadleaf trees,
bushes and other plants ready to use, modify, and expand upon. The user will find there from the most popular Acer saccharum - Sugar Maple, over
beautiful Betula papyrifera - Paper Birch, and exotic Eucalyptus ornata - Silver Mallet, to tall Populus nigra - Lombardy Poplar, and many other
species, including an underwater seaweed. All-in-all more than 200 plants !

Exquisite user interface In all your broadleaf modeling endeavors, OnyxTREE BROADLEAF will give you pretty smooth ride
because of its well thought out user interface. We have set very high standards on how well the interface has to blend with the modeling process so that
it makes it easy and effective.
