+ In a much anticipated collaboration, Planetside Software and Xfrog, Inc. today released Terragen 2 with XfrogPlants. This unique software combines photo-realistic landscaping with the most sought after virtual vegetation. A wholly unique collaboration, Terragen 2 with XfrogPlants unites two companies that share a common goal: to create the most highly realistic virtual ecosystem software available for personal or professional use. With the ability to create entire planets, sweeping vistas, tiny rock gardens or anything in between, the user can step into a creator’s shoes and subsequently animate the virtual environment, giving life to an otherwise static scene.
“Terragen has enjoyed a successful history of photorealistic skies, terrains, water and even whole planets, but for a long time vegetation was our weakest link,” noted Matt Fairclough of Planetside Software, “With Terragen 2 we've changed that by delivering tools to render billions of polygons via instancing. XfrogPlants models are great with Terragen 2 because of their high quality and botanical accuracy.” “Terragen 2 with XfrogPlants, is very exciting for us because we have watched as Terragen developed over the past several years to today’s Terragen 2, which is a wonderful high-end production solution with extremely high render quality,” said Stewart McSherry of Xfrog, Inc. “Adding all 22 libraries of our XfrogPlants into the product is very exciting and gives Terragen users the ability to include large populations of Trees, Shrubs, Palms, Flowers, Cacti, Groundcover, and more, into their scenes, allowing for the creation of entire ecosystems with incomparable quality.” Terragen with (1,300!) XfrogPlants is available for immediate purchase at www.xfrog.com for $699.
