Temperate Ornamental Perennials
Laubwerk Plants Kit 19 is a beautiful collection of 10 temperate flowering ornamental perennial species and cultivars. Each plant has 3 variants and they are designed for architects, garden and landscape designers, and CG artists working in 3ds Max, Maya, Cinema 4D, SketchUp, and Vectorworks.
This impressive collection of ten temperate ornamental species and cultivars is suited for sunny fresh sites in gardens and parks, commonly planted in temperate regions around the world. These herbaceous perennials range from compact showy cultivars such as yarrow ‘Milly Rock Red’ and spike speedwell ‘Blauteppich’ to commonly known species such as soapwort and includes the spectacular blanketflower ‘Burgunder’ with deep red wine, daisy-like flower heads. This kit will add color, structure, and unprecedented detail to your landscaping designs.
Note that Kit 19 is a pre-release, with currently only one season, and therefore offered at a reduced price. Customers who buy this pre-release version now will get the full Kit 19 free when it is released, including all the Kit 19 plant seasons. This special price will only be available until the full kit has been released with all seasons.

Overview of the 10 species and cultivars included in Laubwerk Plant Kit 19.
Includes Free Laubwerk Player
The Laubwerk Player is a plugin for Autodesk 3ds Max & Maya, Maxon Cinema 4D, or Trimble SketchUp that comes bundled with every Laubwerk Plant Kit. It loads the models and allows for easy selection and manipulation of the models, e.g. choose between variations, ages and seasons and allows fine grained control about Level of Detail.
Just drag-and-drop your 3D tree, set the shape, age, and season and level of detail control. Watch the lightning fast rendering with inbuilt and 3rd party renderer support.
Plant Library Browser
The Plant Library Browser appears right in the 3ds Max, Maya, Cinema 4D, or SketchUp main menu and provides direct access to the Laubwerk Plants installed on your computer. Drag-and-drop your 3D tree species into your scene or replace existing trees. Loading the plants through the Plant Library Browser directly creates materials with basic shading and textures preassigned, saving you time and memory while you work.
The Plant Object represents a Laubwerk plant model in your scene by using low-memory hull or skeleton mode for easy placement. It dynamically loads the model’s age and shape that you chose, creating a simple viewport approximation that allows you to apply model alterations and adjust level of detail settings. Laubwerk Plant Objects are fully scriptable using MaxScript.
Dedicated support of V-Ray saves you time and memory. Instead of manually converting Laubwerk Plant Objects into V-Ray proxies, the Plant Object detects when V-Ray is used for rendering and dynamically creates the model’s geometry during rendering. This is the exact same process V-Ray uses for V-Ray proxies, just automatically applied without any manual setup.
Materials and textures are created on the fly – for the built-in renderer or third-party renderers.
For 3ds Max, Maya, and Cinema 4D: mental ray, iray, Maxwell Render, Thea Render, Arnold, RedShift, OctaneRender, and Corona Renderer.
For SketchUp: V-Ray for SketchUp and Thea Render for SketchUp.
Plug and Play – One-click solution for architects and CG artists who need realistic 3D trees, immediately.
Fast and Fluent – Render-ready 3D trees minimize the need for finetuning that can otherwise interrupt your workflow.
Easy and Integrated – Drag-and-drop plants inside 3ds Max & Maya, and MAXON Cinema 4D, or Trimble SketchUp.
Intuitive – Simple settings are a mouse click away.
Smart Content – Go beyond static models! Choose the shape, age, season and detail of each tree.
High Tech – Laubwerk technology minimizes the usual compromise between high-quality graphics and efficient memory usage.
The following 10 temperate flowering ornamental species and cultivars are included in the Plant Kit 19. Each species or cultivar comes in 3 variations in one seasonal aspect (in full bloom), for a total of 30 models per Kit. Note that Kit 19 is a pre-release, with currently only one season and therefore offered at a reduced price.
