Computer Generated Vegetation

The talk will be about the physiology of plants and how to implement branching, tropisms, hormons and their control in simplifyfied simulations.

Abstract

The talk will be about the physiology of plants and how to implement branching, tropisms, hormons and their control in simplifyfied simulations. Also, generation for real time models including metric, LODs, textures, streaming as well as rendering and lighting will be covered in the talk.
