XfrogPlants 3.0 Landscaping Library Vol.1
XfrogPlants 3.0 Landscaping Library Vol.1 | 3.97 Gb
Landscaping vol.1 contains 3D plant models of trees and shrubs pruned
into a wide array of hedges and topiaries. Each species includes 9
variations in age, size and shape for a total of 180 highly detailed,
fully textured 3D models. Use these specialized outdoor landscaping
forms in any outdoor scenes requiring 'human touch'.
[div id="1156263">The concept behind Xfrog is to give the user, powerful building blocks
of Nature as modeling tools. Rather than draw, loft, extrude, revolve,
the user procedurally defines organic forms using sliders.
XfrogPlants, are 30 libraries of popular plants, (2000+ plant models),
and are built by botanical experts who gather real leaves and bark and
painstakingly match photographic references to derive 3-9 variations
of each Species of plants that they model.
The XfrogPlants are in all popular 3d formats and available as
individual models, libraries, and bundles of libraries in our online
In XfrogPlants Version 3.0 Landscaping Library vol.1 included:
- Chamaecyparis hedges
This 3D False Cypress (hedges) contains nine highly detailed, fully textured 3D models of the plant at different ages.
Notes: These species are called ï¿½false cypressesï¿½ because in spite
of their look, they do not belong to the Cupressus genus, although
they are part of the larger Cupressaceae family. They are mostly
coastal species, but can adapt also to inland climates as long as the
thermal excursion is not too strong. They become resistant to frost
only when they are well grown and established adults. The timber is of
high quality and itï¿½s used for works where the reliability and
solidity are important for safety.
- Chamaecyparis allumii
This 3D Allumii False Cypress contains nine highly detailed, fully textured 3D models of the plant at different ages.
Notes: The Allumii False-Cypress is a decorative variety of
Chamaecyparis that features blue-gray leaves. The growth and
environmental characteristics are the same of the main Chamaecyparis
species. It does not require particular care and can be pruned at wish.
This 3D Hibiscus contains nine highly detailed, fully textured 3D models of the plant at different ages.
Notes: The Hibiscus is a small tree shrub of Asian origin. It is not
known anymore in itï¿½s wild state. The species has been used for
centuries if not even thousands of years as a gardening species in the
Eastern Asia for the beauty of itï¿½s flowering. Today is it popular
worldwide as it decorates the homes and gardens all over the world. It
is produced in a variety of flower colors and there is even a
This 3D Forsythia contains nine highly detailed, fully textured 3D models of the plant at different ages.
Notes: Forsythia became known to the western world in the XVIII
century. It was named in honor of William Forysth, director of the
Chelsea Physic Garden. It has soon become a very popular gardening
species because of itï¿½s spectacular yellow flowering, which is one of
the earliest and announces the arrival of Spring. It can and should
be pruned often to encourage a bushy habit and to increase the
production of flowers.
- Ligustrum ovalifolium var. Aureum
This 3D Golden Privet contains nine highly detailed, fully textured 3D models of the plant at different ages.
Notes: The Golden Privet is a semi-evergreen species, meaning that it
usually keeps itï¿½s green foliage all over the year, but during
severely cold winters, along the coasts, it can lose part of all of
it's foliage in the winter season. The species is much appreciated in
gardening because it endures pruning well and the color of the leaves
is very showy. The species is toxic for humans and can cause health
problems if ingested.
- Ligustrum vulgare
This 3D Common Privet contains nine highly detailed, fully textured 3D models of the plant at different ages.
Notes: The Common Privet is one of the most diffused shrubby species of
the Mediterranean maquis and scrubland, especially in the Central and
Eastern Mediterranean. It thrives in the full sun. The name Ligustrum
comes from the habit of Mediterranean populations to use the flexible
branches to bind (ï¿½ligareï¿½ in Latin) things. In spite of the
Southern origin it is a frost-resistant species and is widely used
today all over the world for gardening as it makes excellent and good
looking hedges and bushes.
