Press Release

CG software creator Laubwerk shakes the 3D tree with their first product and free trial

Potsdam, Germany, February 8, 2013: CG software creator Laubwerk announces the launch of their first product, “Plants Kit 1: Temperate Deciduous Trees.” Laubwerk Plants Kits are perfect for architects and CG artists looking for a fast and fluent way to insert authentic-looking 3D trees into their scenes, without having to make the usual compromise between highly-detailed rendering and speed-crippling memory use.

The company has also released the Laubwerk Plants Kit Freebie featuring two brand new procedurally-designed plant species, hand-detailed by botanists and 3D artists. The perfect chance for CG artists unsatisfied with the current standard of 3D plant solutions to try Laubwerk, and get the most realistic trees possible.

"Laubwerk is a breath of fresh air in the existing market of static plant models," says Carlos Quintero, CTO of iToo® Software, creators of Forest Pack® and Railclone® for 3ds Max®.

Philip Paar, founding director of Laubwerk GmbH, states: “Where other vendors force you to make the choice between high-quality botanical content or fast response when editing your scenes, we just deliver both. Whatever quality or interactivity level you require, with Laubwerk, you just flip the switch.”

Recently funded by German VC fund “Frühphasenfonds Brandenburg” and featured in recent coverage by major Berlin newspaper Der Tagesspiegel, influential German start-up blog and international CG blog MAX, Laubwerk is prepared to challenge the status quo of 3D plant solutions.
