Birch forest, anyone?

May 15th, 2008

Taking a little break from the movie. I launched Sandbox2 again and was caught all over by the magnificent cryEngine2. That and I tried the Exodus Pine Trees pack for Crysis (you can see them in the background); they truly did an excellent job! I just tweaked the shaders to get something a little bit more realistic looking, but they’re a pleasure to watch.

And so I thought I’m going to make some trees! The birch is a very peculiar (and recognizable) tree, so I got some source material from the web and went to work. The difficult part is that I had to add support for colored vertices in the Maya exporter; that’s indispensable if you want your leaves to blow in the wind in a convincing way. I think I’ll probably write a tutorial at some point on how to make a tree for Crysis in Maya.

    @Michael: Well thanks, but I’ve only done one map a long time ago (with the demo of Crysis), and it is downloadable if you click on “Seith’s little island (Crysis map)” on the right-hand side column of this site (the link is at the bottom of the page).
