Xfrog components make it easy to build plants, organic shapes or abstract objects. Below you will find a list of the different components and what they can do for you.
All Xfrog components can be animated by varying their parameters: Growth, number of branches, strength of attraction, gravitropism, or phototropism, and each parameter of every Xfrog component can be animated! With this flexibility, Xfrog can animate things like blossoming flowers or trees growing from seed to adult.

The Phyllotaxis Object arranges other Objects on an abitrary surface of revolution, according to the rules of nature (golden section).
The Hydra Object arranges Objects in a circular pattern.
The Curvature Object creates Splines which can be used as a basis for naturally curved leafs or twigs.
The Variation Object allows you to use multiply different Objects with Branch, Phyllotaxis and Hydra.
The Tropism Object lets your spline-based objects bend towards an abitrary direction or position.
The Deviation Object is a simple way to add natural detail to your Branches, by deviating a Branch Object at the places where other Branches emerge.
“In a CG world devoid of natural looking flora, Xfrog is an evolution to the next level. Now CG images can include 3D vegetation for greater photorealism or surrealism, as is wished.?/strong>
