IDV has announced the releases of SpeedTreeRT, a tree creation tool for game and visual simulation development.
SpeedTreeRT delivers low-polygon, highly realistic trees, with adjustable wind effects, seamless LOD transitions, and a huge variety of trees from an included library of over 90 trees from 30 core species.
SpeedTreeRT is one of several members of the SpeedTree line, along with SpeedTreeMAX, a 3ds plugin, SpeedTreeVIZ, a plugin for the Autodesk VIZ application, and SpeedTreeCAD, a Windows application used to create and edit animated trees in real-time. The SpeedTreeRT SDK ships with a copy of SpeedTreeMAX and SpeedTreeCAD.
The license fee for a single title or simulation is $5,995, with other pricing and licensing arrangements negotiable.
