Temperate Kitchen Herbs

Laubwerk Plants Kit 25 – Temperate Kitchen Herbs is an impressive collection of ten temperate and subtropical kitchen herbs species and cultivars for gardens, balcony boxes and windowsills, commonly planted in temperate and Mediterranean climate regions around the world and used in many cuisines around the world.

These plants contain annuals, biannual, herbaceous perennials, and subshrubs. The collection includes, for example common thyme with aromatic-scented, soft pink to light purple blossoms, the small bulbous perennial chives, Mandarin peppermint with spiked rose-pink flowers and Genovese basil, the famous cultivar mainly used in mediterranean cuisine, particularly in pesto.

Note that Plants Kit 25 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 25 free when it is released, including all the Kit 25 plant seasons. This special price will only be available until the full kit has been released with all seasons.

Laubwerk offers easy-to-use software extensions for architects and CG artists looking for authentic 3D plants, and plant scattering tools.

With drag-and-drop simplicity and easy-to-use tools that modify the shape, age, season, and level of detail for each of Laubwerk’s stunning 3D plants, users can seamlessly add 3D trees to any CG project. For Autodesk 3ds Max & Maya, MAXON Cinema 4D, Trimble SketchUp, and Python.

Includes 30 Models

All Laubwerk Plants in this Kit come in 3 variations in 1 season per species or cultivar.

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.

Plant Object

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.

V-Ray Support

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.

Renderer Support

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.
