    TopMod is very interesting. I started using it a few years ago in conjunction with C4D. I could only put my hands on two images
    right now.

    @ChalkMan:
    Thoes are great! Thank you for posting them!!!
    I'm going to be looking into how you did the blue one, that is seriously nice!

    @Frenchy:
    That is awesome stuff, THANK YOU!
    Using TopMod objects as 2.5D brushes is a fantastic thing, I have been doing
    that a lot too, and there is a neat example I will be posting in a moment.
    The yellow and blue one is like one of the things
    Im working on, I love that feature!

    @Ancomic:
    Thank you very much for that, I will check my links in here and make sure
    that is the version people get. I contacted the guy who made TopMod
    basicly to say thanks and he says they are trying to get funding (I think)
    to make a newer and better version of it, I would LOVE to see that.

    @Michalis:
    Coming from you that is a fantastic compliment, I check your threads
    every day to see what you have created, its like getting a present
    everytime you upload something.
    Thank you very very much.



    Now.... all these new and wonderful programs have been filling my
    little pea brain to the bursting point with weird ideas and some of
    them like the grass thing I'm about to upload represent something
    very foreign to me: success at programing.
    I want very much to learn enough to be able to program things
    like a ZBrush script that generates Zspheres or primitives or even
    sculpts things using stuff like the Fibonacci series and other
    numerical sequences like LSystem for making plants and other
    branching thingys.... I just have a LONG way to go and a huge
    amount to learn, including math which I suck at.


    Ok.... this is something I programed in Structure Synth, after
    generating the objects I brought them into Zbrush and hit them
    with the dynamesh button at 1024 so I would keep all the detail.
    Structure Synth uses lots of primitives to generate objects, so
    instead of it being one mesh its lots, in this case 16k or more.
    Once I did that I painted it greenish and used the fiber material
    to make it fuzzy, Im rather thrilled with this thing mainly cause
    I love fuzzy stuff.



    This is not Zbrush at all, its a Mandelbox made in Mandelbulber,
    I think these things are WAY past amazing, the only thing I do
    not like about them is that I cant HAVE one, like in my hand or
    to fly around in or what ever, the only thing I dont like about
    Mandelbulber is that as near as I can tell so far I cannot export
    the things it generates and have them in ZBrush, I guess that is
    sort of asking a lot... As usual I want what I dont have.....
    Mandelbulber is a stunning and wonderful program.



    Frenchy this is the brush I was telling you about, I was trying
    to make something that look soft and fluffy and I think I got it!
    there is a type of cloth or thread called chenille, its some of
    the nicest stuff ever and the colors look a lot like this.



    This is another programing experiment, I modified an existing
    script in a 2D program called ContextFree, I like this program
    a lot too but its a bit harder then StructureSynth for some
    reason.



    This one is TopMod and Zbrush again and very much like Frenchy's one:




    Cheers! and thanks you guys!

    Thanks MealeaYing! Glad you don't feel I am hijacking your thread. Like yourself and Frenchy I have always been interested in working with several softwares in tandem.

    Here are a few more in Topmod/C4D, Topmod/Zbrush and the last one Xfrog/C4D

    Cheers,
    David

    @ChalkMan:
    If this is hijacking please continue! Those are fantastic!!!!!!
    Thank you!

    @Crazy Horse:
    Thank you! The root one was a blast, I programed that thing
    much to my own surprise, it was VERY fun and seeing the result
    in Zbrush was awesome.
    If you look in your Material pallet (In Zbrush GRIN!) you will find
    at the bottom a fuzzy ball icon called "Fibers1" its so much fun!!!!
    You can edit it in the Materiel menu under Modifiers (in the S1 section).


    This script generates trees and does it VERY well in my opinion.
    This started off as a 3D thing, making flat trees, I changed it so
    that it makes them far more complex and also 3D, MUCH more fun!
    StructureSynth is seriously amazing!

    set maxdepth 600 { h 30 sat 0.7 } spiral
    { ry 180 h 30 sat 0.7 } spiral

    rule spiral w 100 {
    box
    { y 0.4 rx 1 ry 1 rz 1 s 0.995 b 0.995 } spiral
    }
    rule spiral w 1 {
    spiral
    { ry 180 h 3 } spiral
    }



    And heres the tree (with fibers!)

    Hi MealeaYing,

    Thank you so much! If you are interested in trees, plants or most things organic, you should look into Xfrog (X-Windows-based Finite Recursive Object Generator). It is available for Mac or PC as a standalone or plugin (Maya, C4D, Modo?)

    You have encouraged me to have fun and experiment more. My latest is Sculptris into Zbrush.

    Hi MealeaYing,

    Since you like fuzzy stuff and organic stuff.

    Hi there,
    if you really like that mathematical stuff maybe you'll find something here
    http://bugman123.com/
    http://www.subblue.com/
    Somewhere there is a program that lets you export to iirc .obj format,but i
    can't remember the name right now,maybe Frenchy still knows.
    Keep on experimenting,J.

    Edit: meanwhile i've found it http://www.incendia.net/index.html ,posted in the "other free applications discussions"
    thread by Frenchy,of course.
