- [Voiceover] Hi, I'm Aaron F. Ross, and I'm pleased to welcome you to Up and Running with Plant Factory Producer. Every computer graphic artist knows how difficult it can be to model realistic vegetation. Well, e-on software has come to the rescue with Plant Factory, a full-featured botanical modeling application that combines the power of a procedural function graph with the intuitiveness of hand sculpting. In this course, we'll see how to model plants, design materials, apply wind effects, and integrate Plant Factory with other 3D programs such as Maya and Vue.
You'll see how fun and powerful Plant Factory is once you're up and running in Plant Factory Producer.
