How to build digital vegetation for VR and what Central Park has to do with it
Vegetation is everywhere in many virtual worlds, but at the same time is very hard to do; there is lots of detail and complex light interaction. Furthermore, with the advent of 3D in movies, complex animation and finally with Virtual Reality, more and more tricks that were used to work around these complexities don't work any more. Timm Dapper, co-founder of Laubwerk, has pioneered tools for the creation of digital vegetation for more traditional computer graphics, and is now moving towards Virtual Reality.
