You know I’ve developed something of an obsession with Agisoft’s Photoscan–an incredibly addicted piece of software.
My latest experiment was to see whether I could combine GrowFX and Photoscan to create trees with scanned trunk. Well, it’s not easy, but you can. The seams are not perfect but it kind of works. And if you thought your GrowFX trees were high-poly before, think again. I’ve put some of these up for sale here, so please check them out if you are so inclined, but I will also work towards trying to streamline the models looking forward, perhaps by using displacement. Obviously these ones here should be used as hero trees rather than to populate a forest (despite what the post title says).
