How it Works
Xfrog adds six new procedural Objects to Maya. By combining these with Maya components/objects you can create a wide variety of organic models and animations using organic procedures (based on some of the building blocks of Nature).
Our tools behave exactly like Maya components, so you can keyframe them and combine them with PaintEffects or Particle animations or use MEL Scripts to drive them – the possibilities are nearly endless.
All the tools can be animated over time by varying their parameters, such as number of branches, gravitropism, phototropism, etc. A convincing flower can be built and animated very easily, or a tree can be modeled and grown. All of Maya animation curve editing features can be used, as well as MEL.
For more information, tutorials and a free 30 day trial, visit the Xfrog 5 for MAYA product page.
Xfrog 5 is compatible with Maya 2010 and Maya 2011. Users with Maya 2008 or 2009 recieve a key for Xfrog 4.3 with purchase of Xfrog 5.
