A Villa in the Mountains
C7design.cn, Jiangmen from China
A Villa in the Mountains is a fascinating new personal project from C7Design in China that features heavy use of Forest Pack and Railclone plus some interesting techniques to combine them with other tools:
"RailClone Pro was used for all the rail, paths, roads, street lights, side stones, roof sheets, tiles, book shelves, and the concrete reinforcing bars and animated using Thinking Particles. Markers were placed for the shrubs and the trees along the roads using RailClone,and then populated using Forest Pack. All the animated plants were made using SpeedTree, cached with Xmesh then scattered with Forest Pack. Moving leaves were animated with thinking particles, cached to Xmesh format and added to a Forest Pack object in order to use Forest Color Map to randomise colours and textures."
