Marlin Studios: Virtual Trees & Foliage Clip Map Textures
Marlin Studios: Virtual Trees & Foliage Clip Map Textures| 1.03Gb
Two CDs of alpha map textures with over 60 trees and plenty of shrubs, plants and flowers.
This fantastic library provides 202 tree and foliage textures, all provided in alpha map texture form with defined transparency. Includes two royalty free Viewpoint Digital tree 3D models, worth $490! . . . plus 20 panoramic backgrounds and 60 background photos.
These 202 alpha map textures have the backgrounds dropped out and made transparent. Each texture can be mapped onto a single plane in a 3D program or composited in a 2D program such as Adobe Photoshop, resulting in a photorealistic tree or plant that can even cast a shadow. This is a great alternative to high-polygon, CGI-looking tree models typically used in 3D scenes. All textures are presented in JPG and TGA formats.
Using alpha map textures, an artist can literally create an entire virtual forest while using a tiny fraction of the system resources required for high-poly tree meshes. Typical textures in the library include trees, shrubs, hedges, flowers, leaves and branches. Trees can even be viewed from above!
