Flora is a set of prototype tools designed to model foliage in a natural and realistic way. The tools are still prototypes and represent the basic concept of what could come with future Houdini foliage tools. Learn more about the Flora tools and the concepts behind them. Please be aware that these tools are in very early development and, as such are subject to bugs and instability.

    Hi Feike !
    Thank you for the interesting lesson. Your tools are impressive!
    Can you explain where we can test the Flora tool or when you are planning to share it ?
