And, as with all our products, we offer free downloads from each of the 9 libraries to try before you buy on our Samples Page.
These models work in 3ds Max 2016, 2015, 2014 and 2013 and require V-Ray 3.2 or higher or Maya 2016, 2015, and 2014 and require V-Ray 3.1 or higher.
We hope you will enjoy these highly robust plant models and find them useful in your workflow.
Mental Ray / Scanline Users
During this project, we have also rebuilt all Volume 2 3ds Max and Maya files for non-Vray users. This low cost Upgrade includes much more accurate heights, completely reworked textures and shaders for highest quality 3ds Max MR/Scanline renders. 3ds Max 2016, 2015, 2014 and 2013 or Maya 2016, 2015, and 2014 or higher are required for these new Maya and 3ds Max models.

If you use XfrogPlants 3ds Max or Maya files currently, and want to get V-Ray, or the latest release of non-Vray (MR/Scanline) please consider our low cost upgrade for Volume 2 or individual Libraries.
Creating a Scene
Ashish Dani has created the “Along the Creek” digimatte (digital photo + 3d computer images) of a Canadian stream and its surrounding trees using the new V-Ray 3.2 XfrogPlants Europe 3 library. Watch the breakdown video below or see an in-depth explanation of the shaders and render passes here.
Do your renders need better plant Quality? These are no simple V-Ray shader networks. These are highly flexible, robust shader networks, that we have spent months developing. So that you may utilize all the potential and power of the plant models. Nothing makes us happier than to see highend renderings of our plants. Please look below at a sample V-Ray shader network, and you can jump to our support page for detailed explanation of the work we have done.
ADaniTools for 3ds Max
A collection of scripts written by Ashish Dani to help speed up 3ds Max workflow. It gives XfrogPlants V-Ray users, a toolkit of scripts to use with the plants, giving technical directors, programming control over them.
