Have you ever felt that your creativity is being limited by the number of limited plants available for Vue?  Are your third party imported plants taking too long to render?  Are you interested in learning how to create your own Solid Growth plants? If so, this is the training for you!

Advanced Custom Plant Creation, is a cross application tutorial.  The tutorial will show you how you can use programs like Photoshop, together with Vue, to create new and completely custom Solid Growth plants and trees.

If you are not a current user of Photoshop, then you will be happy to know that the techniques in the tutorial can be used with almost every image editing application.

Even if you don’t plan on entirely designing your own plants, you can still learn how to use existing images maps, like the ones found in the AsileFX Leaves Collection and AsileFX Seamless Bark, to customize Vue plants and trees.  Samples from these collections are included with the tutorial to aid in the learning process.

The tutorial is taught in Vue 6 Infinite, but it can be used with any version of Vue that has plant surface editing tools.   Photoshop CS2 is used to demonstrate all image editing tools, but most earlier versions possess the same tools, and can be used without restriction.

Instructed by Nicholas Pellegrino.

Includes an HTML Autorun Menu UI for easy navigation through the tutorial.

First you will start out in Vue and learn how plants and trees are generated.  By examining and dissecting each surface, you will gain the knowledge needed to understand what it is that you need to create, in order to modify each plant species.
Next its over to Photoshop were you will learn to use painting tools in combination with images, to make branches and leaves for your Vue trees.   Learn to quickly and easily apply realistic colour blends and variations. Once the colour map is complete, its time to learn how to make your, Alpha/Clip, diffusion, bump, specularity/highlight, and luminosity/luminous maps.
Then it is back to Vue, where you will use the Function Editor, with your created image maps, to edit various Vue plant and tree species.  Apply realistic bark textures to the trunks of your trees.  Learn to create generic leaf surfaces, which can be applied to any tree or plant, and saved for later use.  You can also use these methods to improve the quality and realism of existing Vue plants.
Then its time to take a look at single leaf plants (plants that are created using only a single leaf).  You will be taught to use existing leaf images, like the ones in the Leaves Collection, to directly modify Vue plants for immediate results, with no image editing required.
If you are interested in painting your own leaves, you will find the next part of the tutorial particularly useful.   Learn what things to consider, and what tools to use for painting custom leaves.  Discover how you can create more foliage for denser plants, just by making changes to your image maps. 
Once you have created your own leaves, you can use the knowledge gained from the previous sections to compile your custom plants and trees, and make something entirely your own.
