3D Tree growing software
Plugin for growing and animating trees in Blender.
Let nature take its course and grow natural trees for use in 3D visuals, art and film. Simulate the seasons by growing, bending and pruning in interactive steps. Watch your trees evolve year by year.
Mimic the character of any tree while staying true to nature. A single set of parameters defines your tree’s life all the way from sapling to hero tree. This means that every branch from trunk to twig is treated equal, which causes the slightest change to resonate throughout your tree’s spreading branches.
Control the flow of sugar and hormones to make your creation compete for light. Set up an an environment to attract, deflect, shade and block new growth. Nurture your tree like mother nature, or use prune tools to manually shape your tree.
Quick start your tree – Alder, Ash, Birch, Linden, Maple, Oak – 14 presets capture a variety of tree forms. Thousands of species are just a couple of tweaks away.
Build high quality models that are lightweight to render. The Grove’s adaptive polygon reduction and unique twig system offer incredible detail, with very little impact on memory.
The Grove plays well with other 3D software, while integration with Blender adds the power of a full 3D application. It allows you to import twigs from you favorite modeler – and export trees to your favorite renderer. Blender is the ideal host for The Grove on Linux, Mac and Windows.
Get the Grove and you get in on the most natural and fun way of growing 3D trees.
