XfrogPlants in Tales of the Maya Skies

Mayan Ruins with XfrogPlants

Shown are two production stills stills from the full dome film Tales of the Maya Skies, rendered by the archaeological visualization group INSIGHT. XFrog plants libraries were used to generate all vegetation. Plant geometry modifications were made in Maya, to set dress hero plants among the thousands of instances in the scene. In addition to the region shown in these images, an entire tropical forest canopy was generated to cover the entire region occupied by the post-classic Maya site Chichen Itza. This vegetation comprises more than 4 billion polys. All rendering was done with a non-biased global illumination renderer, Fryrender.
