Leaves and Trees and Branches for the PS3
Interactive Data Visualization, Inc., (IDV), which developed and launched SpeedTreeRT in late 2002, will license the SpeedTreeRT SDK for â€œPLAYSTATIONÂ®3â€ at $9,995US per title. IDV also announces the availability of a free, fully-functional evaluation version of the middleware for potential customers who wish to try it out first. The evaluation kit includes plug-ins for 3ds max and Maya, the fully-functional real-time foliage software and the highly versatile SpeedTreeCAD foliage editor and creation tool.
So PS3 developers now have no excuse for making bushes that disappear if you stand to their right. Or trees that look like spinach when you come up close.
