Digital Element Verdant 1.03D plant creation for Adobe Photoshop
How it works
Verdant works as a plugin with Photoshop, allowing you to build 3D trees and shrubs from a library of presets and customizing these to meet your needs.
You can work directly on your background image to see how your Verdant-generated foliage will fit in with your composition or create the tree or shrub on a new layer altogether. Verdant ships with 35 presets to use as a starting point, from which you can then theoretically build just the right image for your composition.
Once you select the type of tree you want to use, you can then go in and adjust a multitude of parameters for customization. Parameters vary with the tree type, but, in general, for any given preset, you can adjust the following areas of your tree's appearance: age; detail level; mutation; randomness; length of the leaves or needles; amount and color quality of greenery; branch length, number, declination, thickness and chaos; and trunk length, thickness, twist and bend.
