    Very good plugin !!!

    Very useful, well thought, and it's plain to see that you've put an huge amount of work behind it !!! Also very clever use of zScript capabilities.

    I have looked quite a lot about 3d vegetation/trees solutions, and most of them are quite good for background trees (or that are not well seen in the shot) but for foreground/important trees they are often not so good (like making trunk and branches distincts objects, etc...) and resulting trees require lot of tweaking. And they are also not cheap at all !!! So I think your plugin is definitely very valid in this domain !!!

    I didn't play a lot with it, when I will have time I'll try with classic skinning, wonder if it works well. Maybe in next releases you could add some slider to approximately control the random generated trees, like some global coefficient/limit. But that's detail, the plugin is already very complete and awesome !!!

    Congratulations and thanks !!!

    I think a tool for generating plants, foliage etc, would be a great addition for ZBrush! ZTree Plugin is a big step!

    Well , for the leaves and flowers you can use fibermesh in conjunction with micromesh. I will try to make a video showing the process.

    Default Tutorial

    I didn't forget about the tutorial. I just didn't have the time yet. I will try to do it tonight and upload it tomorrow.
    I will explain how I use the Plugin to make the tree with Zspheres , Then I normally use Zremesher for the parts where I need more detail , some tips about texturing and finally how to use fibermesh and Micromesh for the leaves.

    Default Update 4

    In this Update I added a "L-Sys" button that emulates the "fractal" structures created with L-Systems. It adds a new segment from ever ending ZSphere making the structure grow. You can choose between different segments and store the ones you make.
