Many thanks for the compliment. It took a while to understand Xfrog so
far to model such a complex tree. And it was not easy to move it to POV.
Of course, the original Xfrog-File saves the Xfrog parameters only. Only
46 KB are needed to save the complete tree. Exported to wavefront OBJ it
had some 0.5 GB and more than 350.000 groups for every single leaf.
PoseRay failed to convert this huge amount of data to POV within
acceptable time. So I wrote an own procedure using my professional
statistic software which can cope with mass data easily (www.sas.com).
Even compressed the POV code of the tree needs some 50 MB, so I cannot
share it here.
@Thomas: Of course I know the arbaro weeping willow. For example, I used
it in my entry "The secret pond" in the competition "The secret passage"
(TINA CHEP, September 2014) at the very left side of the image. But I
didn't accomplished the modifications I wanted in Arbaro.
