  • New Dynamics – you can now use XSI forces to simulate tree and plant dynamics.
  • New distribution options – new distribution types are random and point distribution.
  • New noise types – you can now use perlin noise to get more natural look of branches.
  • Advanced appearance and distribution settings
  • Node-based tree and plant hierarchy
  • Multicore support
  • Plant dynamics
  • Geometry optimization
  • Animatable trees and plants
  • Intuitive interface
