Vertex/poly count at right is for entire scene as shown. There are six stages plus the two full trees:
Stage1: 60v 65p (average - 5 variations, ~3.5')
Stage2: 198v 222p (average - 4 variations, ~7.8')
Stage3: 384v 424p (average - 6 variations, ~10.2')
Stage4: 1909v 2118p (average - 6 variations, ~21.5')
Stage5: 5607v 6196p (average - 6 variations, ~3 feet)
stage6: 8110v 9014p (average - 6 variations, ~4 feet)
Full tree1: 211695v 239535p, 12.25 feet
Full tree2: 323101v 366191p, 16 feet
'ficus_demo.mov' below shows a typical scene with a few of the full trees as well as scatterings of the different stages as ground cover.
Also includes the NURBS surfaces that were used for distributing the branches to construct the two full trees. Apply a surface constraint to the different stages & construct your own. Using this method any custom tree can be formed in as little as 15 minutes. Use the NURBS surfaces provided or make your own trunk.
Leaves/bark are photos of real F. benjamina; diffuse (bark & leaves) & alpha (leaves - for cutout/opacity) included (packed in the zip archive).
