For existing Xfrog Standalone or Cinema4D Customers: upgrade to Xfrog Maya. With Xfrog 5.5 MAYA,
the organic modeling and animation plugin inside Maya
you can create complex structures such as trees, bushes, and flowers in very
short time -
and with fantastic, realistic quality. Plants, organisms, abstract forms, organic architecture, or special effects,
have a basis in Nature become very easy with Xfrog 5.5 MAYA.
||Branch Object - Create multi-level
branching structures with extremely realistic growth. Animate from seed to adult tree.
||Phyllotaxis Object - Arrange components using the mathematical "golden section". e.g. a sunflower's petals and seed patterns.
||Hydra Object - Arranges components in user defined specialized circular patterns. a wide variety of uses.
||Curvature Object - Creates Splines which can be used as a basis
for naturally curved leafs or twigs. A very powerful addition to Maya.
||Variation Object - Combine different Objects
with the Branch, Phyllotaxis and Hydra Objects, for example you can use different leaves scattered throughout a tree, or any sort of variations that you need for higher realism.
||Tropism Object - Robust Photo and Gravitropism Simulator which pulls the entire hierarchy towards gravity and towards light, with infinite user controls over animation and strength.
The Objects are easily
and precisely controlled by control curves and splines, that can also be animated.
Advanced users can influence the input values of the curves and splines with
so they are able to create unique complex structures

The tight integration of
Xfrog 5.5 for Maya enables the user to combine all tools very powerfully
with each other.
For example, NURBS or polygon objects can be copied with the Branch Object,
the Hydra Object or Phyllotaxis Object.
Or you can use the geometry made in Xfrog 5.5 as basis
of a particle emitter. Even deformers can be applied to Xfrog Objects,
AND you can
even include Xfrog 5.5 in your MEL scripts - all Xfrog 5.5 objects are able to be
controlled with MEL.
