In this session, we covered the VBvisual Plant tool and how to visualize plants, whether by using a VBvisual plant, an image prop, or something created with the Existing Tree tool.
In this session, we used various methods—the Extrude Along Path command, the Foliage tool, and the Create Surface Array command—to create a vertical garden, as well as discussing how to create a transparent color mask and how to use the Chain Extrude tool.
In this session, we showed how to add 3D—whether a 3D model or an image prop—to plants that only have a 2D view, reviewed using the Callout tool and Notes Manager, and discussed changing Roadway station vertices.
In this session we looked at using standard objects, such as the table, to try to create the objects that we require and we looked at 3D people. With the example of the table, one user wanted to use a simple table, but use different chairs, and another user wanted to look at where you could source some good 3D people.
In this session we mainly looked at creating 3D data for plants. We looked at photoshop for tidying up a plant image for use as an image prop and we looked at some resources available on the Internet and how you could use those for your plant 3D data.
