    “101 Erica’s Lane House” – Artwork by The Craft, using SketchUp, 3ds Max, Corona Renderer, and Laubwerk Plants Kits.

    Laubwerk’s 3D foliage assets are some of our favorites. The smart asset type and the plugin to use it is a powerful one! Less intensive on viewport performance, while allowing for fast variations, seasonal control, and level of detail for far-away trees and shrubs. For us, the fact we can use the same assets inside SketchUp is a BIG PLUS!

    For businesses specializing primarily in architectural visualization.

    On DEC 6th, 2018, Quixel has unveiled the ArchViz Program as more and more artists in ArchViz have started using Megascans extensively over the past year. They now finally introduce a license made just for ArchViz, developed in close collaboration with yours truly. It allows you to work on an unlimited amount of projects per year, and the entire Megascans library has been meticulously curated and trimmed to be as relevant as possible. Read more about the new plan and grab your license by clicking the button below.

    “As early adopters of Megascans it has long been our go-to resource for all natural landscaping needs in a full CG environment. With this already extremely comprehensive library increasing in size and diversity to cover almost all conceivable areas in both natural and man-made environments it has now become an invaluable tool across all types of project employed daily in The Boundary workflow.”
