This was so helpful for me. I'm hoping to adapt your tutorial to pull off something similar comparing modern satellite imagery with historical maps. No topo, so my steps should be simpler, but I'm a novice with Blender and you've really helped. Thanks!
Even Top Notch Artists will be replaced by AI. You have no idea what you are talking about. If you do, only very superficial. At the end you are only an employee. You dont have any contact or experience to the High End Echelons we worked on. In 20 years, 40% of workforce working today will be out of jobs. First we will get worldwide financial crash, then AI takes over. Admin will remember my words in not distance future.
Looking for a way to speed up your vegetation work? Xfrog 5.5 for C4D might me a perfect solution. It is a procedural organic 3D modeler that allows you to create and animate 3d trees, flowers, nature based special effects or architectural forms. Xfrog gives you the powerful ability to create and animate organic models.
How it works
Xfrog 5.5 for CINEMA 4D adds seven procedural Objects to CINEMA 4D. By combining Xfrog Procedural Objects with each other and with any CINEMA 4D Objects, you can quickly create very realistic organic models and animations far beyond the existing capabilities of CINEMA 4D.
The Branch Object is for easily setting up elaborate multi-level branching structures with numerous parameters to give them a natural look.
The Phyllotaxis Object arranges other Objects on an abitrary surface of revolution, according to the rules of nature (golden section).
The Hydra Object arranges Objects in a circular pattern.
The Curvature Object creates Splines which can be used as a basis for naturally curved leafs or twigs.
The Variation Object allows you to use multiply different Objects with Branch, Phyllotaxis and Hydra.
The Tropism Object lets your spline-based objects (like Branch, but also the CINEMA 4D SweepNURBS) bend towards an abitrary direction or position.
The Deviation Object is a simple way to add natural detail to your Branches, by deviating a Branch Object at the places where other Branches emerge.
All Xfrog Objects can be animated by varying their parameters: Growth, number of branches, strength of attraction, gravitropism, or phototropism, and each parameter of every Xfrog Object can be animated. Xfrog 5.5 for CINEMA 4D can animate things like blossoming flowers or trees growing from seed to adult.
