MAXON Computer, December 7th, 2001 - In co-operation with architecture specialist V&B Visual, MAXON Computer today released EXTERIORS, a collection of high-quality plant models for use with CINEMA 4D Release 6.3 or higher. Designed to be suitable even for close-ups, each plant model renders quickly and in high quality thanks to clever usage of textures and a polygon count of no more than 8000. Users can create an entire forest in minutes for stills or animation. An intriguing bonus feature of EXTERIORS is the ability to change the season at the click of a mouse button. Trees will shed leaves or plants burst into blossom according to the desired season. Janine Pauke, 3D artist at MAXON, said: 'The surprisingly low polygon count and exceptional render-quality makes EXTERIORS a must for all CINEMA 4D users with a need for trees. The season switching is simply sensational!' The EXTERIORS CD contains a total of over 200 models featuring European trees, bushes, flowers, ivy, water lilies and reeds. Each tree and bush model is supplied in two levels of detail, standard and high.
