Austrian pine in this one. Took a bit to figure out how to make them, but I think they turned out well. At first I had upped the resolution of the branches, despite the fact that you don't really see them unless up close, which proved to be dumb. It put the poly count just shy of 900,000. Once I dropped the resolution of the mesh back down, they were back in the 300,000 range which is much easier to handle in an echo system.
Still have a bit of work to do yet one them, but they are coming along nicely I think.
A note about the Conifers. I initially set the price for $8.50, but didn't realize that with 3 zip files, the lowest price accepted is ten. I apologize for that.
Also, if all goes well, the Cedars should be available soon.
Anyways, having a blast actually, making these trees. There are LOTS of trees out there, but I find decent ones that aren't crazy expensive is tough. I have seen some good ones that are reasonably priced as well, but they are few and far between.
I don't like many of the plants that come with vue, or that you can get for the Vue plant editor. Some can be nice, but up close or even semi close they usually look like ass.
But, these aren't hero trees either, not meant for up in your face, though they do handle somewhat close pretty well I think.
Anyways, enough of my rambling. Hope you like what you see.

These are so realistic! They are sure to be best sellers, Darrin!

Marketplace: pretty darn good trees. Better I think not. When looking at the branches turns a little, the conifers are also at close range, incredibly real than the very low price for so much work you need to miss a word. Who has a little mind, recognize the bargains. Flink is o.k. Render real good
