When used in conjunction with e-on software VUE, PlantFactory will fully integrate and expand the software, so that you can access the plant editing power of PlantFactory directly from VUE, and use the VUE tools to affect the PlantFactory vegetation.
Furthermore, when used inside of VUE, PlantFactory creates unique vegetation - i.e. no two plants of the same species will ever look exactly alike. PlantFactory plants also sway in the breeze, or twist and bend in strong winds.
PlantFactory plants will also automatically adapt their resolution with distance, through a dynamic LOD system, making them perfect for Hero plants, foreground, mid-ground and background placements in your compositions.
PlantFactory vegetation can be edited directly within the VUE Plant Editor. Specific parameters from the plant graph can be extracted to the Plant Editor to create simplified high-level controls and facilitate your plant editing process.
Last but not least, like any VUE component, PlantFactory plants will work seamlessly with the EcoSystem™ technology, to create landscapes containing millions of unique plants!
Animating PlantFactory plants in VUE
Need more environmental power? VUE xStream integrates the world's leading 3D Digital Nature solution directly within 3ds Max, Maya, LightWave, Cinema 4D or Softimage.
Add the PlantFactory technology to VUE xStream, and you'll get the two leading digital nature applications fully integrated and working hand in hand with your preferred 3D solution!
VUE xStream with the PlantFactory technology will allow you to integrate inside your host application landscapes containing millions of unique plants thanks to VUE's EcoSystem™ technology.
Working with LumenRT and PlantFactory
Just like VUE, Bentley LumenRT Connect Edition will load PlantFactory plants natively. Use PlantFactory to build vegetation specifically optimized for LumenRT's real-time engine.
PlantFactory* offers specific export parameters dedicated to the LumenRT Real-Time engine, such as LOD-Scale (to define the distance between each level of subdivision of your plants in LumenRT), or Maximum Map Resolution to make sure your plant's texture maps will be displayed nice and smooth).

PlantFactory Species Control in Carbon Scatter
Carbon Scatter Pro is natively compatible with PlantFactory content (even if you don't have a copy of PlantFactory), including plants with wind animation!
Carbon Scatter Pro is capable of animating natively all the exposed plant properties (such as Health, Seasonality or any other published plant parameter) by re-generating the plant geometry as required, as well as allow tweaking the look of the plant using the Plant Editor.
