Nemanja Stojanovic shows his new plugin 3Gen for creating procedural plants directly in Maya.
Maya has some effective, but slightly outdated tools for creating plants, and that is Paint Effects. There are also a few third-party tools that have some excellent offerings too. Now a new plugin in development from Nemanja Stojanovic will allow users to create 3D models of plants procedurally easily. 3Gen is currently under construction intending to make plant creation in aya super easy using only sliders and buttons.
Have a look at the demo video that shows the current state of the plugin. “Plug-in is still in development, and currently there are no signs on when it will be published,” Stojanovic says although the author would like some feedback. If anyone has any ideas about features or tweaks, Nemanja will be glad to hear from you. Post thoughts as Youtube, Facebook, or Artstation comments.
