An Ivy Generator

by Thomas Luft

A few month ago I was looking for a new sample scene to test watercolor renderings. I was thinking of something complex, filled with vegetation - like trees overgrown with ivy. Fortunately I was able to implement a procedural system so that the ivy would grow by itself. The result is a small tool allowing a virtual ivy to grow in your 3d world.

Please, follow this link to find the original project website containing precompiled releases for Win32 and MacOS along with beautiful example renderings.

Thank you very much for the stunning feedback and the huge interest in this tool! After discussing with a number of people, I decided to remove the restriction of a non-commercial usage. So feel free to use this tool in your projects!

Should you use this software in a commercial project, please consider using my paypal account to offer a donation. This way you support the project and, of course, future releases.
