Affordable SpeedTree Cinema alternatives

Recommended Posts

SpeedTree Cinema is truly amazing, but for an indie artist just wanting to create 1 or 2 pieces for his reel with realistic tree foliage a bit pricey.

Anyone care to recommend and good alternatives?

You can try this : https://www.thegrove3d.com/

I never tried it, but it is less expensive than Speedtree, and seems promising.

But if you need only 2 models, buy them on a model store like Turbosquid or CGTrader (well, depending on the model, the license of the grove maybe less expensive and reusable :-) )

if you are looking for something that is already ready to go and good quality you should check out https://polyget.com/

its created in 3ds max, but I have used their stuff in houdini and it works just fine. very nice geo to work with, and easy to manipulate to your own needs

Thanks. Great resources. On a quick inspection the polyget library looks like an amazing value at a substantial savings over Speedtree. Would luv to see a side by side comparison.
