I would like to do some farm renders and have not been able to find much in the way of crop plants for them. I decided to make this thread to see if anyone knew where I could find some of these plants and to request PA’s to consider modeling some of them. I need them to work in Daz Studio and am willing to buy them if they are reasonably priced. So far I have found olive trees, cherry trees, sunflowers, and strawberries here at Daz. There is also an apple tree here at Daz, but it uses Poser 7 materials and only has textures for early summer. I found carrot, onion, and garlic models in the freepository - http://www.daz3d.com/forums/viewthread/272/

Field crops I would like include wheat, barley, millet, and rice. It would be great if each could go from seedling to immature crop to mature grain.

Just about any garden vegetables would be good. I am most interested in cabbage/lettuce, beans, peas, and tomatoes.

For the orchard, apple trees are the main one I want, but orange, lemon, apricot, peach, pear, and walnut would also interest me. Ideally I would like something like the Lisa’s Botanicals Cherry Trees that use textures for the same tree at different times of the year (winter, spring blooming, green leaves, immature fruit, ripe fruit, autumn leaves).

Thanks. Most of the Xfrog plants here at Daz fall into one of three catagories: Bryce, billboard, or very expensive. At there website they have 31 free sample plants that not only include the cherry tomatoes but also a peach tree, breadfruit,, rosemary, and tea.

I like Bryce, DazStudio, Poser and Vue ... in alphabetical order. And I would probably like Carrara too, if I could find the time to become acquainted with it. Peace?

Sorry, sort of overlooked it was for DS only. But I’ve tested these two (don’t have the other two) in DS 4.5 and they look pretty OK to me:

Taozen - that’s not a problem, most Poser props either work in Daz Studio or can be converted. Besides, it woul be nice if this can be used as a reference for other people looking for these types of plants.

Kerya - the program you linked to looks interesting, and Hexagon will import the files it produces and export them as obj files.

By the way, if anyone knows of farm equipment, either horse drawn or that can be used with the Ford tractor for sale here at Daz, I would be very interested in them. I have found some:

Search at CP on “farm”, they have several items.

These are also included in the Horse 2 Pro bundle:

Merlin has an apple and a cherry tree with fruits in this package:

and apple and cherry trees blooming in this package:

I just bought the “DAZ Dimension Lights 1” and ran a test on the apple and cherry trees:

Check out these ‘Medieval Peasant Life’ sets. The first one has cabbages in a field, the second pumpkins. Third on wheat. Lots of good stuff for on a farm.

Edited to add, these are Studio only. Which is why I forgot I had them—they were hidden in an old content directory and before Genesis I worked mainly out of runtimes. Just re-discovered them and everything works fine in Studio 4.5.

Spit, was looking at those links, I have iClone 3,4 &5 and 3dx5 pipeline and find a lot of iClone props are locked to iClone and cannot be exported.
Do you know which props are not included in the Daz version of the pack?

If you have an iPad, you could use the free treesketch (look at the link)
http://www.cgchannel.com/2011/08/get-treesketch-2-0-cool-free-tree-generation-ipad-app/

And they export great and can be imported in HEX or used as IS. You can use textures from http://www.cgtextures.com to set new textures as the exports come UV mapped and ready.


Edit: added a render of a small heart shaped tree I did.

Everything that’s listed is included in the Studio version.
